Of Teos. Lyric poet. Skythinos' son, though some suggested Eumelos', others Parthenios',[1] others Aristokritos'. He wrote elegies and iambics, all in Ionic dialect. He was born in the time of Polykrates the tyrant of Samos in the 52nd Olympiad,[2] though some assign him to the time of Kyros and Kambyses in the 55th Olympiad.[3] He was exiled from Teos on account of the rebellion of Histiaios and settled in Abdera in Thrace.[4] His life was devoted to love affairs with boys and women and to his poems. He also composed wine-drinking songs, iambics, and the songs called Anacreontea.
