Anyte

Poetess from Tegea who lived in the 3rd century BC. She may have had a school of poetry on the Peloponnese.

Anyte wrote lyrical poetry about nature in the Doric dialect. Just a few epigrams have been preserved by her, as well as 12 fictional epitaphs
over pets.

This created a popular genre amongst the Romans.
