    Dynasty and Family in the Athenian City State: A View From Attic Tragedy.Judith Maitland - 1992 - Classical Quarterly 42 (01):26-.
    Greek tragedy shows a serious preoccupation with family concerns. Some of these concerns seem beyond the scope of ordinary family experience, particularly in the matter of the behaviour of women. The apparent discrepancy between historical evidence and the literary presentation of women has long been noted and variously explained.

    The sea god Poseidon is taken for granted as such in Classical Greek literature and iconography. Yet one does not have to look far in the literary or iconographical sources to find material that conveys a somewhat different impression.

This paper is not an attempt to reconstruct a putative Mycenaean deity, but will examine certain episodes (...)
