    Greece, Vampires in (pop culture) G reece is one of the oldest sources for the contemporary vampire legend. Ancient Greek writings record the existence of three vampirelike creatures—the lamiai, the empusai, and the mormolykiai. Also known in Greece was the strige, a vampire was derived from the Latin strix, which originally referred to the screech owl and later to a night. One of the first concerns a publisher encounters when he or she examines the textual material of the Greek Anthology is how to define it.

As full of poems that are delightfully unlike each other as Books I-XVI, here is a trove. Best, perhaps, to think of it as 'Book XVII'. "The Greek Anthology" ("Gathering of Flowers") is the name given to a collection over many centuries of about short Greek poems (called epigrams but usually not epigrammatic) by about Meleager of Gadara (first century BCE), an outstanding contributor, also assembled the "Stephanus "("Garland"), a compilation fundamental to the Anthology.

    Greek Anthology, Book VI, The priest of Rhea, when taking shelter from the winter snow-storm he entered the lonely cave, had just wiped the snow off his hair, when following on his steps came a lion, devourer of cattle, into the hollow way. But he with outspread hand beat the great tambour he held and the whole cave rang with the sound. Greek and English on opposite pages. Notes: Greek and English on opposite pages.
