Picture[edit]

Why there is picture of Homer (from brittosh museum)? It is this same person? --Kikos (talk) 18:41, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

It appears to be just an error. I have removed it. Ford MF (talk) 19:28, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Inscriptions[edit]

In July 2011 Davidiad marked Only a few of his compositions are actual inscriptions. as dubious. None of our sources for Asclepiades's epigrams are actual inscriptions, but it is possible that some were originally intended and used as inscriptions; however, Sens makes a strong argument that those epigrams that most resemble inscriptions are in fact parodies of traditional epigramatic style. See Sens, Alexander (2011). "Introduction: III. Asclepiades and Inscribed Epigram". In Sens, Alexander. Asclepiades of Samos: Epigrams and Fragments (PDF). Oxford, England: Oxford University Press. pp. xxxvii–xlii. . On that basis, I have changed the Wikipedia text to read Only a few of his compositions were intended as actual inscriptions, if any. --Bejnar (talk) 02:11, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

That seems reasonable, and I'm assuming it was the existence of "actual inscriptions" that Davidiad regarded as dubious. D.'s time on Wikipedia seems more limited these days, but perhaps he still has this on his watchlist. Cynwolfe (talk) 12:25, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
