[1] Greek Anthology 6.165.2 (Phalaecus, or Flaccus?); cf. alpha 4681. On this epigram, a dedication to Dionysus, see Page (46-49) and further extracts at beta 140, beta 548, theta 379, theta 613, iota 72, kappa 2115, kappa 2279, lambda 360, rho 223, and sigma 1193. As Page explains (46-47), the authorship of the epigram is uncertain; the ascription in the Anthologia Palatina, *fala/kkou, seems to be a corruption of either *falai/kou or *fla/kkou. The epigram was excluded from Gow and Page (Hellenistic Epigrams) on the grounds that its elaborate style, typical of the followers of Leonidas of Tarentum, would be an anomaly for Phalaecus, one of the earliest Hellenistic epigrammatists. Then it was omitted from Gow and Page (Garland of Philip) because it was unlike anything ascribed to Flaccus. Indeed, Page wonders (47) whether there were multiple poets named 'Flaccus'. Witczak is unswayed, however, and maintains (171-178) that Greek Anthology 6.165 should be attributed to Phalaecus.
