or ONESTUS (Ὀνέστης, Ὀνεστος
The Greek Anthology contains ten epigrams, inscribed Ὀνέστου
in the Vatican MS; but, as the heading of the sixth anti seventh is Ὀνέστου Κορινθίου
, anld tllat of the ninth Ὀνέστου Βυζαντλου
, it would seem that there were two poets of the name ; but concerning neither of them have we any further information. Brunck even suspected the correctisess of the nasmne altogether; and tholiight it might be a mistake for Ὀνεσίας
, but this supposition is founded on no evidence. Wine, love, and music are the subjects of the epigrams, which are distiniguished by no particular beauty. (Brinck, Anal.
