"This poem," says Coleridge, "is a short mock-heroic of ancient
date. The text varies in different editions, and is obviously
disturbed and corrupt to a great degree; it is commonly said to
have been a juvenile essay of Homer's genius; others have
attributed it to the same Pigrees mentioned above, and whose
reputation for humour seems to have invited the appropriation of
any piece of ancient wit, the author of which was uncertain; so
little did the Greeks, before the age of the Ptolemies, know or
care about that department of criticism employed in determining the
genuineness of ancient writings.
