    This article discusses the rationale of adeia in the fifth-century Athenian legal system. It argues that adeia was designed to grant a temporary suspension of the effect of a law in exceptional circumstances without allowing for any permanent legal change. This article explores the origin of adeia and the relevant ideology underpinning the legal procedure. It provides a comprehensive reconstruction of the legal procedure and analyses the extensive use of adeia for collecting information during the investigation of the profanation of (...)

    Eudocia’s Singing Deacon: Another Programmatic Passage In Late Antique Christian Verse.Andrew Faulkner - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:216-223.
    Amongst the varied literary output of the fifth-century empress Aelia Eudocia is a hexameter paraphrase of the martyrdom of Saints Cyprian and Justina. The opening lines of the poem, which were rediscovered in the second half of the 20th century, describe the conversion of Justina to Christianity through the preaching of a deacon named Praulius. Even as Eudocia remains close to her prose model, she imposes her own interpretation upon the text through subtle variation and careful choice of poetic vocabulary. (...)

  28. Politics and Landscape in the Argive Plain After the Battle of Sepeia.Stefano Frullini - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:110-135.
    Modern studies have emphasized the contradictory nature of the ancient traditions concerning the aftermath of the Battle of Sepeia, in which the Argive army was destroyed by the Spartans. This article tackles the most significant point of agreement in these traditions: the theme of Argive ‘oligandry’, the demographic crisis caused by the battle. An analysis conducted on the basis of Ansley J. Coale and Paul Demeny’s Model Life Tables shows that the real impact of the demographic crisis was felt in (...)

    On the Magnitude of the Gods in Materialist Theology and Greek Art.Guy Hedreen - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:31-53.
    In this paper, I address one characteristic of Classical Greek votive reliefs that has troubled scholars: the size of the gods. The reliefs depict mortal worshippers approaching gods and goddesses who are, almost invariably, larger in stature than the mortals. Scholars have generally explained the difference in scale to be art historical, rather than theological, in significance. Either the larger scale is a visual expression of the hierarchical superiority of the gods or the images of the gods represent over-life-size statues. (...)

    Roman patronage was known to the Greeks in various contexts even in the period of the Third Macedonian War. The reference to it in an Abderan decree can be dated to the 160s BC as part of this process. Although this date is chronologically isolated from the other instances of the term πάτρων in Greek inscriptions, in the light of our historical sources as a whole it is reasonable to treat Syll.3 656 as evidence of how the Greeks were gradually (...)

    This article offers a new, ironic reading of the false narrative of Orestes’ chariot accident in Sophocles’ Electra. It argues that the speech exploits an established connection between the ancestral evils of the Atreids and the thematic nexus of horses, chariot racing and disaster to evoke Orestes’ flight from the Erinyes following the matricide. Focusing on the language and structure of the narrative as well as drawing on other versions of the story, the article demonstrates, in contrast to previous readings, (...)

    Review of Riesbeck, Aristotle on Political Community. [REVIEW]Thornton C. Lockwood - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:297-298.
    Community (κοινωνία) is one of the most fundamental and distinctive concepts in Aristotle’s writings on human action; the political species of community (alongside spousal community, household community, and the community of friendship) is probably the most complicated iteration of the concept. Thus, scholars of Aristotle’s Politics (the primary audience of the volume under review) are much indebted to the publication of Riesbeck’s revised doctoral dissertation (University of Texas, Austin, 2012) that successfully and persuasively elucidates political community by showing both its (...)

  62. Old Cups Die Hard: The Appropriation of Athenian Pottery in the Iberian Peninsula.Diana Rodríguez Pérez - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:74-109.
    The Iberian archaeological record is particularly rich in asynchronous assemblages including Athenian pots that predate the other items by a couple of decades or even a few centuries. Recent scholarship on keimëlia, or ‘curated objects’ in modern parlance, has shown the potential of such objects to investigate questions of identity, agency and history-making among the receiving communities, but also to shed light on the role of Athenian pottery among them. This article analyses this phenomenon within the Iberian peninsula, focusing on (...)

    Imaginary Phrygians: Cognitive Consonance and the Assumed Phrygian Origin of Greek Ecstatic Cults and Music.Yulia Ustinova - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:54-73.
    While Greeks called the ecstatic musical mode ‘Phrygian’, there is no evidence of high-arousal musical performances in Phrygia, and the musical characteristics of this mode were distinctively Greek. The image of wide-ranging excited celebrations practised in Phrygia seems to have existed only in the imagination of the Greeks and Romans. This paper suggests that the uneasiness felt by some Greeks facing high-arousal cults was assuaged by attributing them foreign origin, which was often fictitious. By culturally dissociating themselves from the ecstatic (...)

    Rolling Sisyphus’ Stone Uphill? Plato’s Philosophy of History and Progress Reappraised.Christian Vassallo - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:179-196.
    This paper addresses the following questions about Plato’s concept of ‘history’: is there a ‘philosophy of history’ in Plato’s thought?; if this concept exists, do the dialogues lay out a single, cohesive understanding of ‘history’ or does it vary from text to text?; how does Plato understand the word ‘history’? This inquiry also addresses the role of ‘progress’ in some of the main Platonic dialogues. An in-depth analysis of these texts can also help us find a solution to the problem (...)

  76. Spicing Wine at the Symposion: Fact or Fiction? Some Critical Thoughts on Material Aspects of Commensality in the Early Iron Age and Archaic Mediterranean World.Alexandra Villing - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:1-30.
    Interpretations of metal graters and pottery tripod bowls as Leitfossils of a trans-Mediterranean ‘orientalizing’ culture of spiced-wine consumption have of late become a staple of scholarship on sympotic banqueting, shaping our perception of ancient wine-drinking and its role in cross-cultural interaction in the first half of the first millennium BC. Yet a closer look at the evidence for spiced wine and the use of graters casts serious doubt on assumptions of a widespread practice of adding ‘spices’ to wine during the (...)

  80. Γameσσetai/Γe Maσσetai: Homer Iliad 9.394 and the Constitutive Role of Irregularity.Matthew Ward - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:224-240.
    This paper uses a textual decision at Iliad 9.394 to argue for irregularity as a functional and meaningful principle in the constitution of the Homeric text. In contrast to almost all recent major editions, I argue that the ‘irregular’ MSS γαμέσσεται should be preferred to the Aristarchaean conjecture γε μάσσεται. Aristarchus’ widely adopted emendation, I suggest, is the product of a drive towards standardization that is still operative in Homeric text-critical practice. This paper opposes that standardization with the evidence of (...)
