Semonides of Amorgos

(sĭmŏn`ĭdēz, əmôr`gŏs), fl. c.650 B.C., Greek iambic poet, b. Samos. He led a colony to the island of Amorgos in the SE Cyclades c.630 B.C. In one of the few extant fragments of his work, he satirizes women and likens their natures to the sea, mud, and various animals. The fragments reveal his sense of humor. His name also appears as Simonides.
