Collections of Greek inscriptions initially started from the 3rd century BC and continued with collections of epigrams and short poems, which after the 1st century AD were called Anthologies. These anthologies of Greek epigrams were enlarged with additions of earlier collections, culminating in what is called today "Greek Anthology".
