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
The fifth hymn by Callimachus( Book )

20 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Hecale by Callimachus( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Aetia by Callimachus( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Callimachus' Aetia, written in Alexandria in the third century BC, was an important and influential poem which inspired many later Greek and Latin poets. Papyrus finds show that it was widely read until late antiquity and perhaps well into the Byzantine period. Eventually the work was lost, but thanks to many quotations by ancient authors and substantial papyrus finds a considerable part of it has now been recovered. The aim of the present volumes is to make the Aetia newly accessible to readers. Volume 1 comprises an introduction dealing with matters such as the work's composition, contents, date, literary aspects, and its function in the cultural and historical context of third-century BC Alexandria, and a text of all the fragments of the Aetia with a translation and critical apparatus; while Volume 2 presents a detailed commentary, including introductions to the separate aetiological stories
