Eugenes
(87 words)

[German version]

(Εὐγενής; Eugenḗs)

Writer of an epigram in iambic trimeters about a work of art that represents the old, drunken  Anacreon (Anth. Plan. 308): a very faithful, ambitious imitation of two poems by Leonidas of Tarentum (Anth. Plan. 16,306f.; the expression ‘swan of Teos’, Τήιον κύκνον, in v. 2 is an allusion to Antipater of Sidon 7,30,1). The epigram may be from the beginning of the Imperial period. About the poet, whose name is very rare, nothing is known.
