Printed by Henri Estienne, this collection is composed of the anthology formed of 260 Greek epigrams already published by him in 1566 but here enriched by his own translations into Latin prose, as well as by original translations in verse by himself and by Paulus Melissus.
This publication caused the imprisonment of Henri Estienne, who had not previously requested permission to publish from the Council of Geneva.
