Adrian Hollis's second edition of Callimachus' Hecale includes an English translation of the original Greek text. Twenty years after the first edition appeared in 1990, close study of the Byzantine poets, scholars, and clerics who knew Callimachus' poem intimately has allowed significant progress in our understanding of the poem. Equally valuable are two Byzantine lexicons which clearly had access to an ancient commentary on the Hecale; an Attic vase, which provides our first artistic representation of the myth; and an inscribed Greek elegy from Kandahar, which suggests that Callimachus' 'miniature epic' was known to a Greek poet working in that remote bastion of Hellenism - additional proof of the poet's importance within Hellenistic culture

Callimachus was one of the most important and influential writers in the ancient world. He was the outstanding poet of the Hellenistic period and had a profound effect on the subsequent course of Greek and Roman literature. The hymns are intricate, allusive and difficult poetry, and need elucidation for the modern reader. 'The Fifth Hymn: The Bath of Pallas', is considered by many to be Callimachus' finest surviving poem. Anthony Bulloch has established a new text of the poem, which is printed here with facing English translation. The substantial introduction and full commentary aim to introduce the poem to a wide audience and to help the modern reader to reconstruct what the ancient reader may have taken for granted as part of the crucial and intellectual background and to achieve an informed and sensitive appreciation of the poem in its full perspective. This will be welcomed by Greek scholars and those interested in Greek and Roman poetry

We have no explicit information about the poet MUSAEUS, author of the short epic poem on Hero and Leander, except that he is given in some manuscripts, the title Grammatikos, a teacher, learned in the rhetoric, poetry and philosophy of his time. He was obviously a follower of the Egyptian poet Nonnus of Panopolis, of the fifth century A.D., and his poem seems also to presuppose the Paraphrase of the Psalms of Pseudo-Apollinarius which can be dated to the period 460-470. He may well be identical with the addressee of two letters by Procopius of Gaza (c. 465-528). Among the authors of that period of Egyptians Colluthus and Christodorus of Coptus quote him, and he seems to rank as an already recognized authority in the circle of scholars, poets and orators of the time of Anastasius I (491-518). He takes up a subject whose first detailed treatment is preserved in Ovids Heroides (Epistles 18 and 19), but he presents it in a quite different manner. Among the literary antecedents to which this learned Grammatikos expressly alludes, the most prominent are Books 5 and 6 of the Odyssey and Platos Phaedrus. Besides his knowledge of the Hymns of Proclus he quotes not only the Metaphrasis of the Gospel of St. John by Nonnus, but also a poem by St. Gregory Nazianzenus and even the New Testatment. So he was probably a Christian Neoplatonist writing a Christian allegory. This publication completes the cycle of late Greek epics in the tradition of Nonnus
