BOOK VI

THE DEDICATORY EPIGRAMS

the sources in this book are much more mixed up than in the preceding, and there are not any very long sequences from one source. From Meleager's Stephanns come, including doubtless a number of isolated epigrams, 1-4, 13—15, 34-35, 43-53, 109-157, 159-163,169-174,177-8, 188-9, 197-200, 202-2-26, 262-313, 351-358; from that of Philippus 36-38, 87-108, 186-7, 227-261, 348-350; and from the Cycle of Agathias 18-20, 25-30, 32, 40-42, 54-59, 63-84, 167-8, 175-6.

Many of the epigrams are mere poetical exercises, but in this list I have not tried to distinguish these from real dedications, although I have omitted mere jeux d'espril. Also, some of the best epigrams in which neither the calling of the dedicant nor the cause of the dedication is mentioned are of course not included.
