Among the epigrams collected in the Palatine and Planudean Anthologies under the name of Palladas of Alexandria (c. 350 CE), thirteen are explicitly concerned with the theme of women (9.165-168; 10.55, 56, 86; 11.54, 286, 287, 306, 381, 378). In this article the language and content of these poems are analysed in order to determine the poet's views on and attitude to women and the way he communicates these.
