Abstract: The epigram of Agathon (IG XIV 1320) is the only instance of usage of the Greek term antitypon in the sense of "minute", i.e. a wax tablet for the preliminary transcription on the stone (ordinatio). I believe that some mistakes have been made during the ordinatio, wherefore Agathon can only be the poet and not the stonecutter. In other epigrams the poet, mostly not experiences, presents himself as a mourner through the topos of engraving the epigram by himself – a case that is rarely true. Part of the metric problems of our epigram can be explained by the prosodic phenomenon of this group and the remaining problems by the mistakes during the ordinatio.
