A spring of ambrosial words: finding Pindar in Pindar

Baxter, Elizabeth
This dissertation offers a literary approach to Pindar, his poetics, and his methods of commenting on the poetic art. It argues that Pindar consistently and self-consciously highlights himself in his poetics and that he actively shapes how his audience should receive and understand his poetry. This study challenges a current dominant scholarly approach to Pindar that prioritizes the practical performance context of Pindar’s poetry (an approach which frequently relegates the poet himself to the status of a technical writer of ritual scripts). In contrast, by focusing on the literary aspects of his programmatic techniques, this study makes the case for Pindar as a literary poet. The dissertation focuses on the language and function of Pindar’s invocations of the Muse, his poetic rivalry with and explicit commentary on previous poets, and his development of a complex metaphorical, metapoetic technique; this study also investigates the early reception of Pindar’s poetics and metapoetic techniques and locates the earliest critical reception of Pindar’s poetics in the comedies of Aristophanes. The first chapter considers the variety of ways in which Pindar invokes the Muses, and pursues a comparative reading of Pindar’s Muse invocations. The comparison brings out the range in function of the Muses in Pindar and also argues for a dynamic function of Pindar’s Muse invocations. Chapter 2 investigates Pindar’s poetic rivals and views Pindar in competition with the poets of the past of diverse genres: Homer, Hesiod, and Archilochus. The chapter argues that Pindar presents himself as rivaling these poets and that he engages in literary criticism to clarify his own poetic theory. The third chapter examines Pindar’s poetological imagery and suggests that Pindar’s metaphorical style constitutes a metapoetic technique. This chapter also brings out Pindar’s dynamic effect of layering multiple images for poetry. The final chapter reads Aristophanes’ parody of Pindar in the Birds as a reception of Pindar’s poetics. Through this parody, Aristophanes aims at positioning the comic poet in essential ways as a Pindaric poet. This reception highlights the continued relevance of what it means to be a “Pindaric poet” and signifies important aspects of the legacy of Pindar’s poetics.

Komik im Kult. Eine kontextuelle Untersuchung der böotischen Kabirenbecher

Schlott, Karin 
Die Arbeit behandelt die vielschichtigen Verknüpfungen zwischen der Kultgeschirrgattung der Kabirenbecher, ihrer Bilderwelt und ihrem realen Verwendungsrahmen, dem klassischen Kabirion bei Theben, dessen kultische Lebenswelt durch architektonische Reste und verschiedene Votivgruppen bezeugt ist.

This study is about the multi-layered connections between the cultic pottery of the Cabiric vases, its images and its context of usage: the classical Cabirion at Thebes. There the cult is attested by architectural remains and various votive groups.

Open Access Journal: Teiresias: A Review and Bibliography of Boiotian Studies

[First posted in AWOL 9 November 2009. Updated 16 October 2021]

Teiresias: A Review and Bibliography of Boiotian Studies
ISSN; 1206-5730
Teiresias is a review and continuing bibliography of Boiotian studies (ISSN 1206-5730). It is published twice a year. The core of the journal is its bibliography, but it also publishes archaeological reports, announcements of scholarly events and a Work in Progress section. Since 2000 the journal has carried regular reports of the work of the Ancient Cities of Boeotia Survey Project, as well as reports of the work of the Eastern Boeotia Archaeological Project (EBAP), and the Archaeological Reconnaissance of Uninvestigated Remains of Agriculture (AROURA). From 1976 to 1986 an epigraphic appendix (Epigraphica) was published by the late Paul Roesch. The epigraphic appendix was relaunched in 2016. The journal also maintains a series of Supplements. Since 2016, supplement volumes appear as Teiresias Supplements Online (TSO), edited by Hans Beck and Fabienne Marchand.  
Coming out of McGill University in Montreal, the journal appeared first in 1971, and has been published steadily since then. From 1971 to 1979 it was produced under the joint editorship of Albert Schachter and John Fossey. Albert Schachter has been the sole editor since 1980. From 2016 Teiresias is edited by Fabienne Marchand.
Teiresias was published in print until 1990, and since 1991 has been an online publication, distributed free of charge. Users should register with the editor to have their names added to a mailing list in order to receive notification of the publication of the latest issue.

open Access Monograph Series: Studies in Manuscript Cultures

ISSN: 2365-9696 
Edited by: Michael Friedrich, Harunaga Isaacson and Jörg B. Quenzer

series: Studies in Manuscript Cultures

The series Studies in Manuscript Cultures (SMC) publishes monographs and collective volumes contributing to the study of written artefacts. This field of study embraces disciplines such as art history, codicology, epigraphy, history, material analysis, palaeography and philology.

SMC encourages comparative approaches, without regional, linguistic, temporal or other limitations on the objects studied; it contributes to a larger historical and systematic survey of the role of written artefacts in ancient and modern cultures, and in so doing provides a new foundation for ongoing discussions in cultural studies.
