    The Abolition of the Liturgical Chorēgia and the Creation of the Agōnothesia in Athens: New Considerations on a Debated Issue.Delphine Ackermann & Clément Sarrazanas - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:34-68.
    :No ancient source indicates when the agōnothesia, attested for the first time in 307/6 BC, was introduced in Athens. Scholars have long attributed its creation, along with the abolition of the liturgical chorēgia, to the government of Demetrius of Phalerum, motivated by oligarchic ideology and a desire to preserve the wealth of rich citizens. This traditional thesis has recently been challenged, with some scholars attributing the creation of the agōnothesia to the restored democratic government of 307 BC and others to (...)

    Speusippus, Teleology and the Metaphysics of Value: Theophrastus’ Metaphysics 11a18–26.Wei Cheng - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:143-175.
    This paper reexamines Theophrastus’ Metaphysics 11a18–26, an obscure testimony about Speusippus, the second head of the Platonic Academy. As opposed to the traditional interpretation, which takes this passage as Theophrastus’ polemic against Speusippus’ doctrine of value, I argue that he here dialectically takes advantage of, rather than launches an attack on, the Platonist. Based on this new reading, I further propose a revision and a reassessment of the ‘gloomy metaphysics’ of Speusippus which will shed new light on his ethics.

    Mythographical Topography, Textual Materiality and the (Dis)Ordering of Myth: The Case of Antoninus Liberalis.Charles Delattre & Greta Hawes - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:106-119.
    :This article introduces a new analytical framework, ‘mythographic topography’. This approach recognizes the materiality of mythographic writing as preserved by the manuscript tradition and the significance of the spatial dynamics it produces. Mythographic topography encompasses both the formal properties of textual organization and how these shape the reader’s imaginative experience of space and narrative. As an analytical framework, it involves interrogating a text according to three categories : its arrangement of textual passages, its use of space and its activation of (...)

    Hamilcar of Barce? Discerning Barcid Proto-History and Polybius’ Mixellēnes.Andrew M. Hill - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:69-105.
    :Hamilcar and Hannibal Barca embody a colossal father-son military legacy. Yet their family – the so-called ‘Barcid’ dynasty – has a murky history. Modern scholars have presumed that Hamilcar, the first notable historical figure to bear the name Barkas, received it as a ‘nickname’ meaning ‘lightning’. The rationale is that the name derives from the Phoenician word brq and is thus the equivalent to the Greek epithet Keraunos. There is, however, no evidence in our classical sources, to which exclusively we (...)

    :Anceps is not so free that either a long or a short syllable may be used on equal terms. In fact, some strong tendencies are observed in lyric iambics in tragedy. Long syllable is avoided especially at the final anceps in dimeter/trimeter, for instance. Frequencies are statistically calculated each in turn in various combinations of iambic metra, and irregular occurrences are examined in contexts. In contrast to iambics, anceps tends to be long in D/e. Sophocles employs long anceps more frequently (...)

    :The biography of Anaxagoras, the most brilliant scientist of antiquity, contains many unresolved contradictions, which are best explained as follows. After he ‘predicted’ the fall of the meteorite at Aegospotami in 466, he lived nearby at Lampsacus as the protege of its ruler Themistocles. In 460 Pericles became his patron at Athens, where he lived for the next 30 years. In 431, Pericles was taking part in an expedition to the Peloponnese when the sun was eclipsed; he tried to dispel (...)

The subjects considered include the text itself, the appearance of the stone and the layout in imitation of papyrus, the date as evidenced by the lettering, the use of the Ionic dialect and the references to ‘suffering and continuous mutual slaughter’. Finally, it is proposed that Philip may be ‘the historian Philip’ mentioned in a dialogue of Plutarch.

It surveys the texts that are usually quoted in support of Plutarch’s account and argues that none offers a relevant parallel. It also suggests a different kind of wedding ceremony for Archaic and Classical Sparta.

  55. Attalid Aesthetics: The Pergamene ‘Baroque’ Reconsidered.Thomas J. Nelson - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:176-198.
    :In this paper, I explore the literary aesthetics of Attalid Pergamon, one of the Ptolemies’ fiercest cultural rivals in the Hellenistic period. Traditionally, scholars have reconstructed Pergamene poetry from the city’s grand and monumental sculptural programme, hypothesizing an underlying aesthetic dichotomy between the two kingdoms: Alexandrian ‘refinement’ versus the Pergamene ‘baroque’. In this paper, I critically reassess this view by exploring surviving scraps of Pergamene poetry: an inscribed encomiastic epigram celebrating the Olympic victory of a certain Attalus and an inscribed (...)

    Is Ϝ-Shaped Digamma Attested as a Numerical Sign in Greek Papyri? Once More on P.Herc. 1669 and P.Oxy. 1176.Graziano Ranocchia - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:199-205.
    :T. Dorandi, who has previously proposed to read the book number included in the end-title of P.Herc. 1669 as a numerical ϝ-shaped digamma, has now advanced the same reading in the subscriptio of P.Oxy. 1176, where the editor princeps and all subsequent editors had unanimously read a stigma before. In this article, I argue not only that both readings are palaeographically untenable, but also that they historically contradict the graphic and functional evolution of digamma within the Greek alphabet. In particular, (...)

    Lysimache and Lysistrata.Peter Thonemann - 2020 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 140:128-142.
    :It has long been suspected that the eponymous heroine of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata was intended to evoke the historical Lysimache, priestess of Athena Polias at the time of the play’s first production. But the reasons for this identification have been relatively little discussed. This paper argues that the Lysistrata engages more closely than has traditionally been assumed with urgent political issues at Athens in late 412 and early 411 BC, in particular with the decision in summer 412 BC to broach the (...)
