1630s, “collection of poetry,” from Latin anthologia, from Greek anthologia “collection of small poems and epigrams by several authors,” literally “flower-gathering,” from anthos “a flower” (see anther) + logia “collection, collecting,” from legein “gather” (see lecture (n.)). Modern sense (which emerged in Late Greek) is metaphoric, “flowers” of verse, small poems by various writers gathered together.
