Μελιννώ), a lyric poetess.


Ode to Rome

the author of an ode on Rome in five Sapphic stanzas, which is commonly ascribed to Erinna of Lesbos. Nothing is known of her with certainty, except what the ode itself shows, namely, that she lived in the flourishing period of the Roman empire.


The ode is printed, with an admirable essay upon it, by Welcker, in Creuzer's Melectemata, 1817, p.1, and in Welcker's Kleine Schrifien, vol. ii. p. 160.
