The son of Eucrates, Meleager was educated in Tyre and later moved to the island of Cos in the Aegean, where he wrote poetry and epigrams, many of which have survived. His satirical prose has been lost. He wrote short, elegiac poems on love and death, many of which are included in the Greek Anthology. He is famous for his anthology of poetry called the Garland (Stephanos in Greek) which has not survived. Most of what we know of Meleager is derived from his epigram concerning himself.
