OPPIAN
A Greek didactic poet, of Anazarbus in Cilicia. In the second half of the 2nd century A.D., under the emperor Marcus Aurelius, he composed a didactic poem Halieutica in five books, on the habits of fishes and the method of capturing them. It is written in an ornate, though often bombastic, style. He was formerly confounded with Oppian, the author of a didactic poem on the Chase, consisting of four books, and entitled Cynegetica, written in a harsh, dry style, and in halting verse. The author of the Cynegetica, lived under Caracalla about the end of the 2nd century, and came from Apamea in Syria. A poem on bird-catching, Ixeutica, preserved to us only in a paraphrase by Eutecnius, was alsó wrongly ascribed to the author of the Halieutica.
