Καλλῖνος). The creator of the Greek political elegy. He was a native of Ephesus, and flourished probably about B.C. 700, at the time when the kings of Lydia were harassing the Greek colonies of Asia Minor by constant wars. One elegy from his hand has survived, in which, in a simple and manly tone, he endeavours to arouse the degenerate youth of his fatherland.
