Moschus

Greek pastoral poet and grammarian whose only surviving works are three short extracts from his Bucolica, a longer piece translated as Love the Runaway, and an epigram on Eros, or love, personified as a plowman. The short epic poem Europa is perhaps correctly attributed to him, the Lament for Bion, considered an excellent work, less certainly so. No traces of his activity as a grammarian survive, with the possible exception of a reference by the Greek grammarian Athenaeus to a Moschus who wrote a work on Rhodian words
