Codex Palatinus 23, p. 369


Πριομένα κάλλει Γανυμήδεος εἶπέ ποθ᾽ Ἥρα,
θυμοβόρον ζάλου κέντρον ἔχουσα νόῳ

ἄρσεν πῦρ ἔτεκεν Τροία Διί: τοιγὰρ ἐγὼ πῦρ

πέμψω ἐπὶ Τροίᾳ, πῆμα φέροντα Πάριν:

ἥξει δ᾽ Ἰλιάδαις οὐκ ἀετός, ἀλλ᾽ ἐπὶ θοίναν

γῦπες, ὅταν Δαναοὶ σκῦλα φέρωσι πόνων.

Gow & Page (Hellenistic Epigrams, II, 306) : "The name is attached to an epideictic epigram preserved only by Planudes (A. Pl. 170), who ascribes to 'Ariston or Hermodorus' another which in A.P. (9.77) is assigned to Antipater of Thessalonica, a non-Meleagrian poet. Ascriptions due only to Planudes are suspect, but we include the first of these two mediocre pieces here on the chance that Hermodorus was its author. It should however be borne in mind that not all the poets mentioned in Meleager's preface are represented in the Anthology (see Meleager 3945 n.), and the fact that Meleager lists Hermodorus does not prove that Pl's ascription is correct."
