  • Theocritus, Idyll 11.13–18: Galatea as Thetis Manquée

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Idyll 11, Theocritus depicts the lovelorn Cyclops, Polyphemus, a figure inherited from Philoxenus of Cythera, as an example of how music can cure love, extra point stemming from this poem’s addressee, also that of “Hylas” (Id. 13), Nicias of Miletus being both expert in medicine (ἰατρός, line 5, cf. Id. 28.19–20, Epigr. 8.2–3 = HE 3373–3374) and a Muse-inspired poet (line 6 = HE 3377, cf. Id. 28.7).1Two well-known problems in Theocritus’ idyll are that Polyphemus is as much in love when the poem ends as when it begins, so what kind of ϕάρμακον (1, 17) has he found, and is his singing (ἀείδειν, 13, 18, 39, μουσίσδειν, 81) not a symptom—if not even a contributing cause—of his love rather than its cure'2 Adolf ...

  • Tamen chez Plaute Hélène Perdicoyianni-Paléologou

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ce travail s’inscrit dans le prolongement de nos recherches sur les propriétés syntaxiques et sémantico-pragmatiques des connecteurs dans les pièces de Plaute1. Comme nous l’avons indiqué2, le choix de ce sujet a été déterminé par le manque d’études spécifiques sur les emplois des connecteurs dans un texte qui est considéré comme un des plus emblématiques de l’époque archaïque et qui comporte, outre des mots et des tournures archaïsants, des traits linguistiques déjà classiques3, dont on retrouve des traces en latin tardif. Notre étude se place donc dans une perspective d’évolution de la langue par rapport à l’emploi des connecteurs. De plus, elle vise à combler une lacune dans les études qui traitent ce sujet ...

  • Paul-Émile devant le peuple : opinion publique romaine et politique
           extérieure au deuxième siècle av. J.-C.*

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: À la mémoire de Jean-Louis FerraryL’historiographie francophone récente sur l’époque tardo-républicaine, à l’instar de travaux importants produits par des chercheurs anglo-américains et germanophones1, a accordé une attention de plus en plus importante à ce qui constitue la « culture politique » (ou politische Kultur) à Rome et à ses diverses incarnations, essentiellement d’origine aristocratique, dans la vie de l’Vrbs aux deux derniers siècles av. J.-C.2. D’autres historiens, se dégageant du tropisme élitaire des sources anciennes, tentent, quant à eux, de mettre plus largement en lumière les manifestations de ce qu’il convient d’appeler le politique dans la vie de la res publica, c’est-à-dire l’ensemble des ...

      Abstract: Le volume A companion to Linear B. Mycenaean Greek Texts and their World, Volume 3 fait partie de la série intitulée A Companion to Linear B. Il com-porte deux études, celle de José Melena qui s’intitule « Mycenaean Writing » (1–186) et celle John Bennet qui porte le titre « Linear B and Homer » (187–233).Melena retrace, dans un premier temps, l’histoire de l’écriture, les différents types de signes du Linéaire B, de ses syllabogrammes, de ses logo-grammes et de ses règles pratiques de prononciation.Dans un second temps, l’auteur présente un « in-depth picture » du Linéaire B. La description générale de la formation de ce syllabaire et des valeurs assignées à ses syllabogrammes est suivie d’une étude approfondie ... Read More

  • Lyric Poetry and Social Identity in Archaic Greece by Jessica M. Romney
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The interpretation of archaic lyric in light of its communities and audiences is by no means untrodden ground: one thinks especially of Rösler’s Dichter und Gruppe (1980), Gentili’s Poesia e pubblico (1984), and Ferrari’s Una mitra per Kleis (2007). But Romney’s book, which is based on her 2015 Bristol dissertation, is unique for its overarching concern with lyric poetry’s rhetoric of identity and groupness. Although Greek lyric is notoriously diverse in both its poetic forms and subject matter, Romney traces a number of common strategies for constructing, protecting, and negotiating social identity. Few will be surprised to discover how these strategies are grounded ultimately in a symposiastic performance ... Read More

  • Herodotus: Histories Book V by Peter J. Rhodes (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Book 5 of Herodotus has been well served in recent years, with the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics (aka “green and yellow series”) commentary by Simon Hornblower as well as Philip Peek’s undergraduate text and notes published by the University of Oklahoma, not to mention the collection of scholarly essays edited by Elizabeth Irwin and Emily Greenwood.1 The volume under review is the first to appear in Aris and Phillips’s projected series of commentaries on Herodotus. Book 5 is particularly crucial, for it marks the beginning of Herodotus’ continuous narrative of the Persian Wars with the outbreak of the Ionian Revolt, which carries over into Book 6 (the conventional book division, which was not his own, failing ...

  • Hellenistic Pottery: The Fine Wares by Sarah A. James (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Corinth has always been at the epicentre of studies on ancient Greek ceramics, a situation justified by the importance of its ceramic output, especially during the Orientalizing and the Archaic periods, as well as by its long-term significant geographical location at the junction of important commercial routes. As a result, Corinth’s Hellenistic pottery record was comprehensively researched by Roger Edwards as long ago as 1975 (Corinth VII.3). Apparent shortcomings of Edwards’s absolute chronology, however, called for a re-evaluation of the city’s ceramic evidence. This need was accentuated by the fact that his conclusions were drawn from relatively few and not diverse enough deposits, with most coming from wells ... Read More

  • Roman Animals in Ritual and Funerary Contexts. Proceedings of the 2nd
           Meeting of the Zooarchaeology of the Roman Period Working Group, Basel,
           1st–4th February 2018 ed. by Sabine Deschler-Erb, Umberto Albarella,
           Silvia Valenzuela Lamas, and Gabriele Rasbach (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The discipline of zooarchaeology/archaeozoology has grown immensely over the past few decades. Short reports from earlier days, which overviewed assorted assemblages and contexts, dispersed across various archaeological sites and timeframes, have now blossomed into more focused volumes that explore, in greater detail, specific topics and questions within more restricted temporal, societal, and regional settings. The end result has showcased the role of zooarchaeological work in fine-tuning investigations of the past. Animals fulfill multiple duties and purposes in human culture. Spotlighting individual contributions, therefore, not only enhances the ultimate power and importance each aspect might serve, but also ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Gender dysphoria, transitioning, and its equally painful counterpart, detransitioning, have been in the local South African news recently, so much so that the author of the article “Who am I' Female or male'” suspects that there is some sort of psychic epidemic amongst transgender teens both here and abroad.1Welcome then for its relevance to students of the classics in this country is Exploring Gender Diversity, a collection of fifteen essays edited by Canadian scholars, Allison Surtees and Jennifer Dyer, as part of the Intersectionality in Classical Antiquity series, designed to “focus on the intersection of gender and sexuality in the Greco-Roman world.” Books in this series, we are informed by the introductory ...
