The group of poets, to whom Cicero refers somewhat contemptuously as the Neoteroi, seems to stand a little apart from the main course of epyllion development. It is difficult to judge of the tendencies of this school as a whole, since it is now represented only by the Peleus and Thetis of Catullus. But in this poem at any rate there is no trace of the influence of Euphorion, and the tradition is rather that of Theocritus and Moschus than that of Callimachus; and though the title of Cinna’s epyllion, the Zmyrna, suggests the later Greek type, it is clear that there was a marked tendency at least in some part of this school to return to the idyllic treatment.
