  1. The “Rough Stones” of Aegina: Pindar, Pausanias, and the Topography of Aeginetan Justice.Leslie Kurke - 2017 - Classical Antiquity 36 (2):236-287.
    This paper considers Pindar's diverse appropriations of elements of the sacred topography of Aegina for different purposes in epinikia composed for Aeginetan victors. It focuses on poems likely performed in the vicinity of the Aiakeion for their different mobilizations of a monument that we know from Pausanias stood beside the Aiakeion—the tomb of Phokos, an earth mound topped with the “rough stone” that killed him. The more speculative final part of the paper suggests that it may also be possible to (...)

  • Myth and the Polis in Bacchylides' Eleventh Ode.Douglas Cairns - 2005 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 125:35-50.
    Bacchylides' eleventh epinician ends not with renewed praise of the victor but with an extension to the ode's main myth which forges a link between the Arcadian cult of Artemis founded by Proetus and his daughters and the foundation of the victor's horne city of Metaponturn by Achaean colonists identified with the heroic captors of Troy. The culmination of the ode in praise of a successful colonial foundation, it is argued, is the key to the principles on which Bacchylides has (...)

  • The Shield of Heracles and the Legend of Cycnus.R. Janko - 1986 - Classical Quarterly 36 (01):38-.
    Much has been written on the genesis of the pseudo-hesiodic Shield of Heracles — so much, that true progress is difficult to discern among the welter of theories. But some has been made, although the conclusions that have been reached must be regarded as likely hypotheses rather than proven facts. In this article I propose to proceed from some of these conclusions, ensuring that they are as firmly grounded as possible, to an assessment of how this poem's version of the (...)

  • Systematic Genealogies in Apollodorus' Bibliotheca and the Exclusion of Rome From Greek Myth.K. F. B. Fletcher - 2008 - Classical Antiquity 27 (1):59-91.
    Apollodorus' Bibliotheca is often used, though little studied. Like any author, however, Apollodorus has his own aims. As scholars have noticed, he does not include any discussion of Rome and rarely mentions Italy, an absence they link to tendencies of the Second Sophistic, during which period he was writing. I refine this view by exploring the nature of Apollodorus' project as a whole, showing that he creates a system of genealogies that connects Greece with other places and peoples of the (...)
