Confusion among various epigrammatists named Philip

Among the writers whose Epigrammata are inserted in the various editions of the Anthologia Graeca, or in other works, are several who bear the name of Philip; as Philip the Macedonian [No. 15], and Philip of Thessalonica [see below].

There are two others: a Philip whom Fabricius styles Junior, and assigns to the fifth or sixth century after Christ.


There is extant an Epigramma in Amores sibi arridentes Constantinopoli, which is assigned to Philip of Thessalonica.


Among his epigrams it is No. lvii., in the editions of Brunck, vol. ii. p. 227, and Jacobs, vol. ii. p. 211.

There is a Philip called Byzantinus who composed an Epigramma in Herculem.


This is given in the Mythologiae of Natalis Comes, lib. vii. pp. 691, 692, ed. sine loci not. 1653, and assigned to Philip of Thessalonica (No. li.) in the Anthologia of Brunck, vol. ii. pp. 225, 226, and Jacobs, vol. ii. p. 209.
