Gaetulicus

(122 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] [I] (Γαιτουλικός; Gaitoulikós). Epigrammatist, to whom ten poems are ascribed in the Anthologia Palatina (not authentic, however, Anth. Pal. 7,245 and perhaps 6,154), which in style and topics (but not by their arrangement) bear resemblance to the ‘Garlands’ of Meleager or Philippus; however, 11,409 originates from the Anthologion of Diogenianus [2] of Heraclea. The identification with the poet Cn.  Cornelius [II 29] Lentulus Gaetulicus, who was cos. in AD 26 and executed by Caligula in 39, is controversial. G.'s poetry is without originality. I…

Peritas

(61 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Περῖτας; Perîtas). Otherwise unknown epigrammatic poet, to whom two distichs about Priapus, the protector of the garden, are attributed (they are alternatively ascribed to Leonidas [3] of Tarentum): Anth. Pal. 16,236 (cf. 16,261 by the same Leonidas), possibly the model for 16,237 by Tymnes and certainly for Priap. 24). Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna) Bibliography GA I 2, 385.

Crinagoras

(225 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Κριναγόρας) of Mytilene. Born about 70 BC, he probably did not die before AD 11 (Anth. Pal. 7,633, cf. 9,283). C. was an influential man in his native town. His participation in several delegations from his town to Rome is attested in inscriptions: in 48 or 47 and in 45 (IG XII 35a; 35b), in 26/25 to Tarragona in Spain (to Augustus, IG XII 35c). He was also highly regarded in Rome where he belonged to the circle around Octavia, the sister of Augustus. C. is one of the significant…

Pollianus

(136 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Πωλλιανός/ Pōllianós). Epigrammatist of the golden age of the Imperial skoptic epigram. Of his output, the following survives: a description of a painting - attributed without evidence to the sculptor Polyclitus (Anth. Pal. 16,150) and four satirical poems, one against a prolific poet lacking in any critical faculty (11,127), one against a certain Florus, author of clumsy, heavy verse (128: identification with the poet and historian Florus [1] is pure speculation), one against the cyclic poets as 'pillagers' of Homer (130) and one against a profiteer (167). Albiani…

Samius

(121 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Σάμιος/ Sámios), also Samus (Σᾶμος/ Sâmos). Epigrammatist of the 'Garland of Meleager' (Anth. Pal. 4,1,14), son of Chrysogonus and contemporary of Philip [7] V of Macedonia (Pol. 5,9,4), who condemned him to death (Pol. 23,10,8-10) perhaps because of his criticism (Plut. Mor. 53e). A poem about Philip V dedicating to Heracles the hide and horns of a bull survives (Anth. Pal. 6,116); a variant (ibid. 6,114) on the same theme can probably also be ascribed to him (the attribution to Simi…

Phanias

(104 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Φανίας; Phanías). Epigrammatist, perhaps among the last (2nd-1st cent. BC?) of the Garland of Meleager (Anth. Pal. 4,1,54); also a grammatikós (lemma on 7,537). Among the eight poems of his to survive (including one erotic one: 12,31), minute accounts of work tools and everyday objects predominate; with these, P. emulated Leonidas [3] of Tarentum. The extremely rare Latinism δρύππα, 'ripe olive' (cf. Anth. Pal. 6,299,4), may reflect direct knowledge of the terminology of Italian agriculture. The form Phainías for the name (cf. lemma on 6,299 and 12,31) se…

Zelotus

(82 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Ζηλωτός/ Zēlōtós). Greek epigrammatist, possibly first half of the 1st cent. AD. Planudes ascribes to him an anonymous poem Anth. Pal. 9,31: a boat, hewn from a pine tree uprooted by the winds, predicts storms at sea. Ascribed by the Codex Palatinus to a bearer of the extremely rare name Z. - as an alternative to Bassus - is a one-line version on the same theme (Ant. Pal. 9,30). Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna) Bibliography FGE, 103 M. Lausberg, Das Einzeldistichon, 1982, 364.

Pollianos

(116 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Πωλλιανός). Epigrammatiker der Blütezeit des kaiserzeitlichen Spottepigramms. Von ihm sind erh.: die Beschreibung eines - ohne Anhaltspunkt dem Bildhauer Polykleitos zugeschriebenen - Gemäldes (Anth. Pal. 16,150) und vier satirische Gedichte, eines gegen einen fruchtbaren, aber jeglicher Kritikfähigkeit entbehrenden Dichter (11,127), eines gegen einen gewissen Florus, den Verf. plumper und schwerfälliger Verse (128: die Gleichsetzung mit dem Dichter und Geschichtsschreiber Floru…

Krinagoras

(222 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Κριναγόρας) von Mytilene. Geb. um 70 v.Chr., gest. wahrscheinlich nicht vor 11 n.Chr. (Anth. Pal. 7,633, vgl. 9,283). K. war in seiner Heimatstadt ein einflußreicher Mann. Seine Teilnahme an verschiedenen Gesandtschaften seiner Stadt ist inschr. bezeugt: im Jahr 48 oder 47 sowie im Jahr 45 nach Rom (IG XII 35a; 35b), im Jahr 26/25 nach Tarragona in Spanien (zu Augustus, IG XII 35c). Auch in Rom war K. hochangesehen; er gehörte dem Kreis der Octavia, der Schwester des Augustus, a…

Honestus

(116 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] Epigrammatiker aus dem “Kranz” des Philippos, unter dessen seltenem Namen Ὅνεστος (wahrscheinlich Assimilation des röm. Cognomens H.) - er wird bald als Korínthios (vgl. Anth. Pal. 9,216), bald als Byzántios (vgl. ebd. 7,274) bezeichnet - zehn größtenteils epideiktische Gedichte erh. sind, die oft in Bezug zu Böotien stehen und sich durch Antithesen und lexikalisch wie phraseologisch originelle Wortprägungen auszeichnen. Beinahe sicher ist die Identität mit dem homonymen Verf. der in Thespiai ans Licht gekom…

Kallikter

(103 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Καλλικτήρ) von Manesion. Epigrammatiker, vielleicht aus dem 1. oder 2. Jh.n.Chr., dem die satirischen Einzeldistichen Anth. Pal. 11,2; 5; 6 und, Planudes zufolge, 333 zugeschrieben werden. Ihm gehören wahrscheinlich auch die Epigramme gegen die Ärzte 11,118-122, nach Planudes jedoch dem Nikarchos. Dem Namen Killaktor werden die erotischen Gedichte Anth. Pal. 5,29 und 45 zugeschrieben; zugunsten einer Gleichsetzung mit K. spricht die Seltenheit der beiden sonst nicht belegten Namen, über deren genuine Form noch Unsicherheit besteht. Albiani, Maria Graz…

Kalleas

(81 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Καλλέας) von Argos. Sonst unbekannter Verf. eines sympotischen Epigramms (Anth. Pal. 11,232), das auf dem Sprichwort aufbaut: ‘Der Wein verrät den Charakter’, einer Version des alten Sprichworts in vino veritas (vgl. Alkaios fr. 333 Voigt; Thgn. 500; Aischyl. fr. 393 Radt usw.). Das sehr seltene Kompositum λυσσομανής (“rasend”, V. 2) wurde wahrscheinlich aus Antipatros [8] von Sidon (Anth. Pal. 6,219,2) übernommen. Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna) Bibliography V. Longo, L'epigramma scoptico greco, 1967, 106  H. Beckby, Anthologia Graeca, III-IV, 21967.

Kyllenios

(96 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Κυλλήνιος). Verf. zweier epideiktischer Epigramme, die thematische und stilistische Affinitäten zum “Kranz” des Philippos aufweisen, sich jedoch nicht mit Gewißheit darauf zurückführen lassen. In Anth. Pal. 9,4 rühmt ein wilder Birnbaum in elaborierter Sprache mit entlegenen Wörtern denjenigen, der ihn durch einen Pfropfreis fruchtbar gemacht hat; bei Anth. Pal. 9,33 handelt es sich um ein glänzendes Distichon über ein Schiff, das Schiffbruch erlitt, noch bevor es fertiggestellt…

Karphyllides

(92 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Καρφ-/Καρπυλλίδης). Epigrammatiker, wahrscheinlich aus dem “Kranz” des Meleager. Erh. ist, unter dem Lemma Καρφυλλ-, ein Grabepigramm (Anth. Pal. 7,260), in dem der Verstorbene voller Zufriedenheit auf sein langes, von der Zuneigung seiner Kinder und Enkel gekröntes Leben zurückblickt. Stilistisch weniger hochwertig ist das epideiktische Gedicht, das unter dem Lemma Καρπυλλ- überliefert ist (9,52): Die Seltenheit des Namens, der in keiner der beiden Formen sonst irgendwo belegt ist, steht einer Annahme von zwei verschiedenen Autoren (Knaack) entgegen. A…

Moiro

(142 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[English version] (Μοιρώ) aus Byzantion. Epische, elegische und melische Dichterin, Mutter des Tragikers Homeros [2] (Blütezeit in den Jahren 284/281 v.Chr.) und Gattin des sonst unbekannten, philólogos genannten Andromachos (vgl. Suda s.v. Μυρώ). Meleagros [8] stellt sie neben ihre Zeitgenossin Anyte und direkt vor Sappho (Anth. Pal. 4,1,5; vgl. Antipatros [9] von Thessalonike Anth. Pal. 9,26,3f.) und behauptet, in seinem “Kranz” ‘viele Lilien der M.’ gesammelt zu haben: Erh. sind nur Anth. Pal. 6,119 und 189 (zwei klar…

Theodoridas

(116 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Θεοδωρίδας; Theodōrídas). Greek poet from Syracuse (second half of the 3rd cent. BC; on his origin  cf. Ath. 15,599e), whose varied works are all lost (cf. [1]) with the exception of 19 elegant epigrams (dedications, funerary poetry and two epideictic poems; the attribution by Anth. Pal. 7,282 is uncertain) in Meleager's [8] 'Garland' (4,1,53 f.). In a fictional funerary inscription (Anth. Pal. 13,21) T. criticises Mnasalces; he also seems to attack Euphorion [3] in an epitaph (7,406) which he presumably wrote when Euphorion was still alive. Albiani, Maria Grazia…

Satyrius

(133 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Σατύριος; Satýrios). Epigrammatist of uncertain identity, perhaps identifiable with Satyrus [9]: the only surviving poem, Anth. Pal. 6,11, is attributed by the Anthologia Planudea to one S. (name rarely attested), but by the Anthologia Palatina to a Satrius, not recorded elsewhere (possibly the Italic gens name Satrius? cf. [2]). Content: dedication to Pan by a hunter, a bird catcher and a fisherman (theme of 14 further epigrams from the 3rd cent. BC until the 6th cent. AD, parodied by Lucianus, perhaps Lucillius…

Iomedes

(109 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Ἰομήδης; Iomḗdes). Otherwise unknown author of a grave inscription from the 2nd or 3rd cent. AD found at Nemra (Namarae Batanaeorum) in Syria (five partly damaged distichs). The poet, who calls himself ‘master ( prýtanis) of the Ausonian muse’ (v. 10), celebrates in those lines his own forefathers, who once dedicated a memorial to Tyche in the same place. At the end (v. 9), he signs with his name (τήνδ' Ἰομήδης; tḗnd' Iomḗdēs), which has been taken to be - because of its singularity - an intentional and witty alteration of ‘Diomedes’ [1]. Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna) Bibl…

Cyllenius

(103 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Κυλλήνιος; Kyllḗnios). Author of two epideictic epigrams that show thematic and stylistic affinities with the ‘Garland’ of Philippus, but which cannot with certainty be traced back to it. In Anth. Pal. 9,4 a wild pear tree praises in elaborate language and little-known words the one who made it fertile through a graft; in Anth. Pal. 9,33 there is a brilliant distich about a ship that was shipwrecked even before it was completed (a variant is 9,35 that Planudes attributes to the same C. whilst the P manuscript however attributes it to  Antiphilus [3]). Albiani, Maria Graz…

Nossis

(161 words)

Author(s): Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna)
[German version] (Νοσσίς; Nossís). Female epigrammatist from Locri Epizephyrii; most of her writing took place at the beginning of the 3rd century BC (cf. Anth. Pal. 7,414: epitaphios on Rhinthon; 6,132: praise for the victory of the Locrians over the Bruttians), of noble descent (cf. 6,265). Her poems were found in the ‘garland’ of Meleager [8], who emphasises her inspiration by Eros (4,1,9f.), which N. herself revealed in the programmatic poem 5,170. The 12 poems, each with four lines (6,273 is u…
