Brilliant translation, especially on the epigrams. This has spurred a lot of interest in Callimachus for me. I'll be looking into other translations to compare!

Some of these paeans are actually entertaining narratives, biographies of particular deities, but even those are hard for a modern reader to appreciate. Unironic praise is outmoded, perhaps permanently.
