Comment Oxford Classical Dictionary: "Her traditional date has been contested. No Alexandrian scholar studied her work, and the earliest references to her belong to the 1st cent. bce (Anth. Pal. 9. 26; Prop. 2. 3. 21); the papyrus fragments consistently reflect the Boeotian orthography of the late 3rd cent. bce; her metre shows some affinities with Attic drama and her simple style is unlike that of Archaic choral poetry; the papyrus presents sporadic Atticisms."
