Τύμνης), an epigrammatic poet, whose epigrams were included in the Garland of Meleager, but respecting whose exact date we have no further evidence; for the grounds on which Reiske supposes that he was a Cretan, and that he was contemporary with Meleager, are very slight. There are seven of his epigrams in the Greek Anthology. (Brunck, Anal. vol. i. p. 505 ; Jcobs, Anthol. Graec. vol. i. p. 256, vol. xiii. p. 963; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iv. pp. 498, 499.) Tymnes occurs, as a Carian name, in Herodotus (5.37, 7.98).
