（Κωνσταντῖνος ὁ Σικελός
), is the author of an epigram in the Greek Anthology on the chair (Θρόνος
) from which he taught, which is followed in the Vatican MS. by the reply of Theophanes. (Jacobs, Paralip. e Cod. Vat.
199, 200, xiii. pp. 737, 738.)
Since each poet's name has the title μακαρίον
added to it, it would appear that they were both dead before the time when the Palatine Anthology was compiled, that is, the beginninig of the tenth century. From the subject of the above-mentioned epigram it is inferred, that Constantine was a rhetorician or philosopher.
There is extant in MS. an anacreontic poemi by Constantine, a philosopher of Sicily. (Κωνσταντίνου Φιλοσόφον τον σικελοῦ;
