Excellence of workmanship is particularly noticeable in what remains of Ibycus, Simonides, Bacchylides.
For example, they are found fairly plentifully in the papyrus of Bacchylides of the 1st century B.C.
A pellucid style must always have been a source of wide, though modest, popularity for Bacchylides.
Yet Bacchylides and Ion are "faultless, with a style of perfect elegance and finish."
The method of Bacchylides is usually quieter; he paints cabinet pictures.
