Σημωνίδης ο Αμοργίνος

Simonides of Amorgos, the second (after Simonides of Cos), both in time and in reputation, of the three principal iambic poets of the early period of Greek literature--namely, Archilochus, Simonides, and Hipponax. He was a native of Samos, whence he led a colony to the neighbouring island of Amorgos, where he founded three cities--Minoa, Aegialus, and Arcesine--in the first of which he fixed his own abode. He flourished about B.C. 664. Simonides was most celebrated for his iambic poems, which were of two species, gnomic and satirical. The most important of his extant fragments is a satire upon women, in which he derives the various, though generally bad, qualities of women from the variety of their origin: thus, the uncleanly woman is formed from the swine; the cunning woman, from the fox; the talkative woman, from the dog, and so on. The best editions of the fragments of Simonides of Amorgos are by Welcker (Bonn, 1835) and Bergk (1878).
