Greek Poet

Terpander was a Greek poet and musician from the island of Lesbos who was famous as a singer.

He is said to have invented a seven-stringed instrument resembling a lyre, called 'kithara'.

Terpander won a prize for music with that instrument at the 26th Olympiad held in Sparta, and he established a school for musicians there. He is also created a system of muscical notation.
