▪ epic poet
flourished 5th century BC, Ionia

       epic poet from Halicarnassus, on the coast of Asia Minor. Panyassis was the uncle (or cousin) of the historian Herodotus. He was condemned to death by the tyrant Lygdamis about 460 BC. The Roman rhetorician Quintilian stated that some later critics regarded Panyassis's work as being second only to Homer's. His chief poems, extant only in fragments, were the Heracleia, in 14 books, describing the mythical adventures of the hero Heracles (Hercules), and the Ionica, relating in elegiac couplets the founding of Ionic Greek colonies in Asia Minor.
