Headword: Πέρσης
Adler number: pi,1375
Translated headword: Perses
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
of Askra, epic poet, brother of the poet Hesiod.
Greek Original:
Πέρσης, Ἀσκραῖος, ἐποποιός, ἀδελφὸς Ἡσιόδου τοῦ ποιητοῦ.
Note:
For Hesiod see eta 583. Despite the present entry, there is no good reason to believe that Perses, the target of some of Hesiod's strictures in Works and Days, was himself a poet. (Adler notes D. Ruhnken's conjecture of γεωπόνος 'tiller of the soil' for ἐποποιός , but the latter is a designation that the Suda awards very freely.)
Keywords: biography; definition; epic; geography; poetry
