Pithou: Epigrammata

Epigrammata ed. by Pierre Pithou (1590)

There are four books of epigrams here, collected from a variety of ancient authors (the author of each poem is indicated), organized by types: primus est eorum quae ad sacra et mores pertinent; secundus elogiorum; tertius epitaphiorum et tumulorum; quartus miscellaneorum et omissorum. Following the epigram are some other "poematia." There are all kinds of intriguing epigrams here, both by Latin authors along with Latin translations from the Greek. I should be able to find some intriguing distich poetry here!
