Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, Vol 3, 1867, p. 94-5: "Palladas, the author of a large number of epigrams in the Greek Anthology,which some scholars consider the best in the collection, while others regard them as almost worthless: their real characteristic is a sort of elegant mediocrity..."
Brill's New Pauly: "Palladas, Important exponent of pre-Byzantine epigrammatic poetry and probably the author of a collection of mostly satirical epigrams... he lived in the 2nd half of the 4th cent. AD in Alexandria....P. lived to over 72 years of age (Anth. Pal. 10,97) and was a schoolmaster (grammatikós
cf. Anth. Pal. 9,174) but he lost his teaching position, probably because of his rejection of the Christian faith (Anth. Pal. 9,528...... due to a report (Anth. Pal. 9,175) that refers to the edict of Theodosius (391). The c. 160 poems are not always faultless as far as the rules of metre are concerned but they give new impetus to derisive writing (animated with Hipponactian sarcasm) and the gnome (with its basically pessimistic mood but richness of original ideas)..."
