Contextual information The title refers to this epigram and another one that precedes it (inc. Ὦ μάκαρ ἀμβροσίῃσι συνέστιε φίλτατε μούσαις). This pair of poems follows in the manuscript a note on Callimachus' genealogy and is introduced by these words: 'εὕρονται δὲ καί τινα ἐπιγράμματα εἰς τὸν πρῶτον καλλίμαχον ἀδέσποτα οὕτως ἔχοντα'.
After the two poems a series of epigrams by Callimachus are written.
