An epigram is a brief, interesting, memorable, and sometimes surprising or satirical statement. Derived from the Greek term, ἐπίγραμμα or epigramma, an epigram implies ‘inscription’ from ἐπιγράφειν or epigraphein, which means ‘to write on, to inscribe’. This literary device has been employed for over two millennia.
