It must be clearly understood that I am using the term 'Aeolic' in the modern (linguistic) sense.
And what need is there for supposing that an Aeolic poem must contain any Aeolic characters at all?
Ibycus of Rhegium (c. 540) wrote choral lyrics after Stesichorus and glowing love-songs in the Aeolic style.
In the Iliad, as we have it, only a small proportion of the characters at most can be regarded as Aeolic.
So too the digamma is called “Aeolic” by grammarians, and is found on Aeolic and Doric inscriptions.
This is the presence of an Aeolic or semi-Aeolic form of language in Boeotia.
This poem, like the preceding one, is written in the Aeolic dialect.
The other Aeolic and Ionic leaders are distinctly less prominent.
They are sufficiently accounted for by the fact that the poems are of Aeolic origin.
It is to be remembered that as a patronymic Τελαμώνιος is an Aeolic formation.
