8. The name of various EPIGRAMMATIC poets.
Under the name of Asclepiades the Greek Anthology contains upwards of forty epigrams; but it is more than probable they are not all the productions of the same poet.
Asclepiades of Samos
Some of them undoubtedly belong to Asclepiades of Samos, who is mentioned as a teacher of Theocritus.
He is said to have written bucolic poetry. (Schol. ad Theocr.
7.21, 40; Meleager, 1.46; Theocrit. 7.40; Moschus, 3.96.)
Asclepiades of Adramyttium
Other epigrams under the name Aslepiades may be the productions of Asclepiades of Adramyttium, who lived at an earlier time.
Jacobs, ad Anthol.
xiii. p. 864.
