Titʹyrus

.

Any shepherd. So called in allusion to the name familiar from its use in Greek idyls and Virgil’s first Eclogue. In the Shepherd’s Calendar Spenser calls Chaucer by this name.

“Heroes and their feats

Fatigue me, never weary of the pipe

Of Tityrus, assembling as he sang

The rustic throng beneath his favourite beech.”
