In the Palatine Anthology, they are stated to have established lyric song.
In most Greek sources, the word melikos (from melos, "song") is used, but the variant lyrikos (from lyra, "lyre") became the regular form in Latin (as lyricus) and in modern languages. The ancient scholars defined the genre on the basis of the musical accompaniment, not the content. Thus, some types of poetry which would be included under the label "lyric poetry" in modern criticism—namely, the elegy and iambus which were performed with flutes—are excluded.
