I added a translation of, and commentary on, Anacreon 358.  Apart from the poetry of Alcaeus, which as it relates to Sappho's is a topic all to itself given the fact that Alcaeus and Sappho both lived on Lesbos at roughly the same time and appear to have been in a relationship of some sort, the poetry of Anacreon and this poem in particular is the earliest definitive evidence of Sappho's influence on Greek literature.
