Μόσχος). A Greek bucolic poet, who lived in Syracuse about B.C. 150. Four longer and four shorter poems have been handed down as his; they show the greatest elegance of expression without the truth to nature and the dramatic power of his model, Theocritus. His lament for Bion is marked by melody and genuine pathos. Edited with Bion (q.v.) by Jacobs (1795); Wakefield (1795); Hartung (1858); and Ahrens (1875).
