Μεσομήδης). A Greek lyric poet of Crete, who lived about A.D. 130, and was a freedman of Hadrian. Three small poems of his have come down to us (Anthologia Graeca, xiv. 63; xvi. 323). They are not unattractive, and the one on Nemesis is of peculiar interest, as its musical composition is indicated according to the ancient notation. See Brunck's Analecta, iii. 292; Bellermann, Hymnen des Dionysius und Mesomedes, pp. 13, 26.
