page 160 note 1 The epigram is, of course, erotic. For its interpretation cf. Eranos 1969, forthcoming. I might as well add now that, if the Lysanies of the epigram is really to be identified with the one who was at school with Callimachus, this would be no obstacle at all to their being lovers (cf. Gow–Page ad loc.): indeed, everything would fit ά merveille. Callimachus may well have been considerably the elder, and the teacher Eratosthenes may well have been faced, as regards Callimachus and Lysanies, with the problems described by Juvenal 7. 239 (ne faciant). Callimachus' epigram may well date from his student days (as is the case with Posidippus A.P. v. 34 = Gow-Page 3054 ff.; epigram correctly dated by Schott): from a scholastic matter, the study of Cyclic poetry, he got the pretext to move on to the erotic theme.
