Mousiká included theatre, poetry and dance as well as music, and was
the 'craft of the Muses', a concept introduced in the odes of lyric
poet Pindar, who was aged nearly 80 at this time. One of the earliest
references to mousiká appears in a verse by poet and dramatist
Epicharmus, who died around 440 BC, which mentions a "well-voiced"
woman who is "equipped with all the mousiká" and "a lover of the
lyre".
