Abstract. The paper discusses the various ways in which Greek poets, from the midthird century BC down to the Byzantine age, exploited Callimachus’ language, style, and poetics and how the reception of Callimachus changed over time. Callimachus was arguably the most important poet of the Hellenistic age, for two reasons: his engagement with previous theorists of poetry and his wide-ranging poetic experimentation. Of his poetic oeuvre, which exceeded what we now have of Theocritus, Aratus, Posidippus, and Apollonius combined, only his six hymns and around fifty of his epigrams have survived intact.
