We have no explicit information about the poet MUSAEUS, author of the short epic poem on Hero and Leander, except that he is given in some manuscripts, the title Grammatikos, a teacher, learned in the rhetoric, poetry and philosophy of his time. He was obviously a follower of the Egyptian poet Nonnus of Panopolis, of the fifth century A.D., and his poem seems also to presuppose the Paraphrase of the Psalms of Pseudo-Apollinarius which can be dated to the period 460-470. He may well be identical with the addressee of two letters by Procopius of Gaza (c. 465-528). Among the authors of that period of Egyptians Colluthus and Christodorus of Coptus quote him, and he seems to rank as an already recognized authority in the circle of scholars, poets and orators of the time of Anastasius I (491-518). He takes up a subject whose first detailed treatment is preserved in Ovids Heroides (Epistles 18 and 19), but he presents it in a quite different manner. Among the literary antecedents to which this learned Grammatikos expressly alludes, the most prominent are Books 5 and 6 of the Odyssey and Platos Phaedrus. Besides his knowledge of the Hymns of Proclus he quotes not only the Metaphrasis of the Gospel of St. John by Nonnus, but also a poem by St. Gregory Nazianzenus and even the New Testatment. So he was probably a Christian Neoplatonist writing a Christian allegory. This publication completes the cycle of late Greek epics in the tradition of Nonnus

Vissuto tra il V e il VI secolo d.C., originario della Siria, Romano il Melode è l'autore più rappresentativo della letteratura poetica della Chiesa cristiana d'Oriente. La sua opera, qui pubblicata in due tomi, raccoglie trentotto contaci - componimenti poetici costituiti da un numero variabile di stanze - che sulla base del contenuto si possono dividere in tre gruppi: gli inni che si ispirano ad episodi dell'Antico e Nuovo Testamento; gli inni parenetici o penitenziali; quelli di carattere agiografico. Rispetto ad altri innografi, ciò che caratterizza la produzione del Melode è l'estrema cura formale, ma il compito che si propone l'autore è quello del catechista più che del poeta: l'uso della retorica, i giochi di parole, le corrispondenze lessicali, le immagini grandiose e le ricercate metafore sono finalizzate a spiegare i significati sottintesi della Bibbia e l'elevazione morale degli ascoltatori
