Putnam's Pages: The Greek Anthology THE GREEK ANTHOLOGY(77) _"The Spectator," _ Shelley, himself a translator of one of the best known of the epigrams of the Anthology, has borne emphatic testimony to the difficulties of translation. Book IX —Philippus Of Thessalonica. The child, treading on the frozen stream of Thracian Hebrus, did not escape death; but when he slipped into the river, now less solidly frozen, his tender neck was cut through by the ice. The rest of his body was carried away, but the head which remained on the ice gave of necessity cause for a funeral. Greek Anthology Book XII Strato’s Musa Puerilis. Strato, whose name this book bears, lived probably in the reign of has generally been supposed that the whole book is an anthology of poems on this peculiar subject made by him, but it seems more probable to me that Strato published merely a collection of his own poems, and that it was Cephalas or some other Byzantine who inserted.

Peter Jay's selection from the Greek Anthology is, to me, an almost inexhaustible book. The some epigrams, short poems, inscriptions, and epitaphs of the original collection have been whittled down to about , organized by era, and then again by ascribed author.5/5(6). The Greek Anthology ('Gathering of Flowers') is the name given to a collection of about short Greek poems (called epigrams but usually not epigrammatic) by about composers. To the collection (called 'Stephanus', wreath or garland) made and contributed to by Meleager of Gadara (1st century BCE) was added another by Philippus of Thessalonica (late 1st century CE), a third by Diogenianus. The Greek Anthology is the largest surviving collection of short Greek poems, starting from the earliest poets and going up to Byzantine times. It is primarily based on a compilation of epigrams made by the Byzantine scholar Constantinus Cephalas in the 10th century, with some additions by Maximus Planudes in the late 13th century.   The author has obviously gone to great lengths to compile the definitive book of Greek myth and to this end also includes alternate telling of the story. A bit dry of a read for new comers but a splendid piece of literature for anyone interested. Read more. 6 people found this s:
