Epigram adalah sebuah pernyataan singkat, peminatan, kenangan dan terkadang pernyataan mengejutkan atau satir. Kata tersebut berasal dari kata bahasa Yunani: ἐπίγραμμα epigramma "enkripsi" dari ἐπιγράφειν epigraphein "untuk menulis, untuk menginskripsi",[1] dan perangkat sastra yang dipakai selama lebih dari dua milenium.

Buku 1628 Robert Hayman Quodlibets berisi sebagian besar teks dari epigram.
