Mousaios is een hekkensluiter. Zijn 'Hero en Leander' is één van de allerlaatste parels van de Griekse poëzie uit de Oudheid. Over de dichter met de legendarische naam (Mousaios, de leerling van Orpheus) weten we niets. We situeren hem in de late vijfde eeuw na Christus, men vermoedt in Egypte. Of hij ook nog andere poëzie geschreven heeft, weten we evenmin. Het meesterschap dat blijkt uit zijn verstechniek lijkt te suggereren dat hij niet aan zijn proefstuk toe was. 'Hero en Leander' vertelt een tragisch liefdesverhaal dat in de Nederlanden vooral bekend zal klinken door de opvallende gelijkenissen met de ballade van de twee koningskinderen: een verboden liefde wordt bemoeilijkt door de zeestraat die de geliefden scheidt. Als oplossing zwemt hij, Leander, elke nacht de Hellespont over, terwijl zij, Hero, vanop haar toren voor een lichtbaken zorgt. Maar dan breekt de winter aan en volgt de eerste storm? 00Berenice Verhelst, jarenlang secretaris van het Griekenlandcentrum, vertaalde dit ?epyllion? (een kort episch gedicht) naar het Nederlands

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods
