Hermodo'rus

4. A lyric poet, whose songs were incorporated in the Anthology of Melcager. We still possess an epigram of his on the Aphrodite of Cnidus (Brunck, Analect. 1.162), but he is otherwise unknown. There is a fragment of two lines quoted by Stobaeus (Flor. tit. 9.2), under the name of Hermodotus, which, according to some critics, is a mistake for Hermodorus; but nothing can be said about the matter. (Jacobs, ad Anthol. xiii. p. 902.)
