Sample text

Pelias’ son Acastus had invited the heroes of Greece to prove themselves in contests that, according to one version of the story, inspired an oath of unity and the foundation of the Olympic games. Glaucus had incurred the anger of Zeus, however, possibly for his practice of feeding his horses on human flesh, as a measure, perhaps, to give them supernatural strength. He pastured his horses at Potniae, near Thebes in Boeotia, and there divine retribution led his horses to drink from a spring, or to eat poisonous grass, that would drive them mad.

It is a shame that we have no trace of the text of Hypodicus’ performance such as we have of some of his more famous successors. But perhaps, in the martial enthusiasm of the newly liberated Athenians, we see its effects. Tragedy too could take up contemporary themes under the nascent Athenian democracy. Phrynichus is the earliest tragedian whose artistry is known to us before the surviving works of Aeschylus. He is best known to history for the impact of his play, Sack of Miletus. The play dramatized the fall of the chief city of Ionia to the Persians at the end of the Ionian revolt of 499–494.

Tradition, when the paintings on the stoa were created, held that democracy was an Athenian trait, and therefore it must have been so from the time of its legendary founding hero. 7 Public celebration of Democracy was an even more recent development at Athens than Pausanias thought. Celebrations in the name of Democracy were no older than 403, at the earliest. The term demokratia, “rule of the people,” is not firmly attested as a description of the Athenian form of government until the last third of the fifth century.
