    The Homeric Hymns are 34 anonymous poems in the epic meter, the earliest of which may have been written roughly contemporaneously with Homer and Hesiod. Diane Raynor says it's Thucydides (3.104), who labeled the hymns Homeric because he thought the bard had written them. Not only are the Homeric hymns poems worth reading as literature, but they also include information on mythology, rituals, and places.

    Some are incomplete.
