Sue Prideaux, I Am Dynamite! A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche (London: Faber & Faber, 2018), p. 37:
Fewer than than 1,400 lines survive by the sixth-century BC Greek poet Theognis of Megara. This gives Theognis something in common with Nietzsche's other subjects, Empedocles and Diogenes Laertius.
The remains of Theognis and Empedocles are exiguous, true, but Diogenes Laertius survives in bulk (ten books of his Lives of the Philosophers).

Hat tip: Eric Thomson.
