Pa'rthenis

Παρθενίς), a female epigrammatist, who had a place in the Garland of Meleager (5.31). None of her epigrams are extant, and here is no other mention of her, unless she be the same as the poetess whom Martial compares with Sappho (7.69. 7), where, however, the true reading of the name is doubtful: the best editions have Pantaenis.
