One of the foremost Greek lyric poets; native of Mitylene; flourished in the sixth century B.C. Of his poems we have only fragments; some were hymns to the gods, others battle songs, still others were in praise of liberty; very many were love songs of pronounced erotic character. He is said to have been the literary model of Horace.
