Battiades (in Catullus's 65th poem) was another name for Callimachus.

Evidence includes:

E. T. Merrill, Commentary on Catullus. Online at Perseus

Harry Thurston Peck. Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities. New York. Harper and Brothers. 1898. Online at Perseus

The 65th poem announces Catullus has translated him; the 66th poem is (probably) the actual translation.
