Kostis Palamas (Greek: Κωστής Παλαμάς; 1859 – 1943) was a Greek poet who wrote the words to the Olympic Hymn. He was a central figure of the Greek literary Generation of the 1880s and one of the cofounders of the so-called New Athenian School (or Palamian School, or Second Athenian School) along with Georgios Drosinis and Ioannis Polemis.
