poetry in koine?
The article deals with pronouncing words in Koine, but if you wonder about Koine Greek poetry, see https://books.google.com/books?id=BwHPKIUXKGsC&pg=PA98&dq=koine+greek+poetry&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwirtoC1z4XPAhVFSCYKHbQyDyUQ6AEIRjAI#v=onepage&q=koine%20greek%20poetry&f=falseHe sugegsts the habit of ancient Koine poets was to archaize their works. I believe that every poem I've read in Greek was written during the classical period (pre-Alexander).
The Greek Anthology is claimed to contain first century poetry.http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/book/browse?type=lcsubc&key=Greek%20poetry%20--%20Translations%20into%20EnglishHave.not had time to look through it though.CO visit this week.
I hope you have an enjoyable CO visit this week. As for the link, it seems that the works span from Homer onwards. It has been my fate (and beneficial) to read Homer and other Greek/Latin poets. The later Greek poets usually practiced Atticism.
