Pindar, Nemean 7.20-21

 

 

“I think that the story of Odysseus’ suffering was exaggerated by sweet-worded Homer”

 

 

ἐγὼ δὲ πλέον’ ἔλπομαι

λόγον ᾿Οδυσσέος ἢ πάθαν

διὰ τὸν ἁδυεπῆ γενέσθ’ ῞Ομηρον·

 

Pindar was a poet of Epinikion.

(but this line doesn’t seem to be about praise… for Homer, at least)
