There is some speculation that the Hymn was written by a woman,
possibly Sappho (ca.630-570, BCE, see online article by Ann Suter, also the
translation by Diane Rayor, "Homeric Hymns," 2004, p.11. Sappho has also
been suggested as a possible author for the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite
(see Richard Janko, "Homer, Hesiod and the Hymns," 1982/2007, 169-79).
Thus a number of books on Sappho and other Archaic Greek
women poets are included below.
