[1] Greek Anthology 5.194.5-6 (abridged; attributed to Poseidippus or Asclepiades), on a girl named Eirenion; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 53), (vol. II, 140), and another extract from this epigram at lambda 768. Gow and Page, along with H. Stadtm├╝ller (1845-1906) and R.A. Reitzenstein (1861-1931), find Asclepiades to be the epigram's probable author (ibid.).
