1. Of Athens; and 2. of Nicopolis, poets of the Greek Anthology, whose epigrams seem to have been confounded together. The Anthology contains six epigrams, of which the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th are simply inscribed Γλαύκου, the 3rd, Γλαύκου Ἀθηναίου, and the 6th, Γλαύκου Νικοπολίτα. From internal evidence, Jacobs thinks that the 1st and 2nd belong to Glaucus of Nicopolis, and that the 3rd, 4th, and 5th were written by one poet, probably by Glaucus of Athens. These latter three are descriptions of works of art. Perhaps all the epigrams should be ascribed to Glaucus of Athens. (Brunck. Anal. vol. ii. pp. 347, 348; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. iii. pp. 57, 58, vol. xiii. p. 898; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. ii. p. 122, vol. iv. p. 476.)
