Greek poet known for his distinctive choral lyric verse on epic themes. His name was originally Teisias, according to the Byzantine lexicon Suda (10th century AD). Stesichorus, which in Greek means "instructor of choruses," was a byname derived from his professional activity, which he practiced especially in Himera, a town on the northern coast of Sicily.
