SUMMARY: Few fragments survive from the works of two minor Hellenistic poets, Nicaenetus and the poetess Moiro` (or Myro` ), and modern scholars left both of them in obscurity. This paper, based on a deep investigation, now sheds light on their lives and provides a commentary on their poems. Nicaenetus and Moiro` (or Myro` ), who lived in the 3rd century B.C., composed epic poems and epigrams, of which 20 hexameters and 7 epigrams are extant. All the testimonia antiquorum are discussed. Quotations from Nicaenetus are found in later authors (Meleager, Parthenius of Nicaea, the historian Menodotus) and he was known until the late Imperial age, to the mythographer Conon, the metrist Hephaestion, Nonnus of Panopolis and Stephanus of Byzantium. Moiro` (or Myro` ) could have been the initiator of a literary genre, the curse poetry, a genre practiced by Callimachus (Ibis), Euphorion (Chiliades, Imprecations or the cup-stealer, Thrax) and in Latin by Ovid (Ibis).
