Like his uncle, Bacchylides was also counted among the Nine Lyric Poets, a group which also included their alleged rival Pindar. Bacchylides' poems celebrated the various gods, Athenian democracy, and champions of the Olympic Games, such as Hiero I of Syracuse, the tyrant of Syracuse. To celebrate the poet, a garden was raised in his honor on Keos, but by the time of the Peloponnesian War, when the misthios Kassandra visited it, the garden was in shambles and had become 'lost'.
