This volume contains the papers of the 'Groningen Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry 5: Hellenistic Epigrams' (Groningen 30 August - 1 September 2000). During the workshop a first draft of the papers was discussed and commented on by an international group of specialists in the field of Hellenistic poetry. The volume contains a wide range of articles and thus provides a survey of current developments in research on one of the important genres of Hellenistic poetry. Several articles deal with generic aspects of the Hellenistic epigram, including the transition of inscriptions on stone to purely literary texts, others explore the function of the epigram in its social and cultural context or focus on specific groups of epigrams. The volume is the fifth of a series. Every two years a Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry takes place at the University of Groningen, the papers of which are published in the series "Hellenistica Groningana".
