Charites (Graces)

(602 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Χάριτες; Chárites). Group of goddesses who embody beauty, happiness and abundance. They appear for the first time in Homer, where their number, like that of the Muses is ambiguous; it is however clear that more than one existed and that not all were of the same age. Hera promises Hypnos that she will give him as his wife Pasithee, one of the younger Charites, whom he desires (Hom. Il. 14,267-276). In Il. 18,382f. one Charis is also the wife of Hephaestus, who is actually married t…

Aedon

(137 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Ἀηδών; Aēdṓn). Daughter of Pandareus, who out of jealousy towards Niobe tried to murder her oldest nephew. But she inadvertently killed her and Zethus' son, Itylus/Itys and was changed into a nightingale (Hom. Od. 19,518-523) [1]. Theban version of the story of Procne and Philomela: Hes. Op. 568 and Sappho fr. 130 V; Attic version: Soph. Tereus: TrGF 4 p. 435-437 and Apollod. 3,193 [2]. Ant. Lib. 11 transfers the incident to Ephesus. A. designates the personified nightingale. Olde…

Amphiaraus

(262 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Ἀμφιάραος; Amphiáraos). Argive seer. Although he knew that the expedition of the Seven against Thebes was doomed to failure, he had to acquiesce to the judgement of his wife Eriphyle, who had been bribed by Polyneices with the necklace of Harmonia. According to Homer (Od. 15,243-255), A. died in Thebes. (Genealogy: Pind. Pyth. 8,39; Diod. Sic. 4,68,4 f.) According to a second version (possibly Thebaïs EpGF fr. 9), A. was hurled with his chariot into a crevice in the earth opened up by Zeus (representation [2]). A. participated in the funerary games for Pelias (St…

Athamas

(357 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Ἀθάμας; Athámas). Son of the elder  Aeolus and Enarete, born in Thessaly (Apollod. 1,51), ruled in Halus and Orchomenus and was married to Nephele, Cadmus' daughter  Ino and Hypseus' daughter Themisto. The preserved myth stems at least partly from lost plays of Aeschylus (TrGF 3.1-4), Soph. (TrGF 4.1-10; 721-723) and Eur. (TGF 398-427; 819-838). Since the curse on A.'s house is mentioned in Hdt. 7,197, one can assume that the myth came from northern Greece to Athens during the time of the Persian Wars. Because Ino wanted to get rid of her stepchildren, she let t…

Boeotus

(326 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Βοιωτός; Boiōtós). Ancestor of the Boeoti, defies precise identification. Only two genealogies connect him to the region that bears his name. According to Hellanicus (FGrH 4F51) and others [1], he was the son of Poseidon and Arne (who gave her name to the original homeland of the Boeoti). In Paus. (9,1,1) B. is the son of Itonus and Melanippe. One of the two is probably father of Onchestus (Hes. fr. 219 M-W). The myth passed down to us seems to go back no further than two lost pla…

Daphnephoria

(388 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Δαφνηφορία; Daphnēphoría). A ritual carried out everywhere Apollo bore the epithet daphnēphóros (‘branch wearer’) (e.g. IG IX 2, 1027). Only the Theban ritual has been verified; the sources are Pindar, Proclus and Pausanias, who each deal with a different stage in the process. The most detailed description is by Proclus, who explains the daphnephoric ode sung by a girls' chorus (Photius 321a-321b). The ritual is supposed to have been held on an enneaeteric basis (every ninth year). A paîs amphithalḗs (‘child flourishing on both sides’) led the procession; b…

Actaeon

(297 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[German version] (Ἀκταίων; Aktaíōn). a) Theban: son of Aristaeus, son of Apollo and Cyrene, and Autonoe, daughter of Cadmus and Harmonia (Hes. fr. 217 A; Eur. Bacch. 230). b) Attica: mythical king and eponym of Attica (Str. 9,1,18; Paus. 1,2,6: Actaeus). Variants of a): 1. A. rapes Semele; consequently Zeus sends Artemis to set A.'s dogs on him. A. is torn to pieces. (Hes. fr. 217, cf. 346; Stesich. fr. 236 PMG; Acusilaus FGrH 2 F 33; Apollod. 3,31). 2. A. is killed, because he boasts that he is a …

Charites

(544 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[English version] (Χάριτες). Gruppe von Göttinnen, die Schönheit, Heiterkeit und Überfluß verkörpern. Sie erscheinen zum ersten Mal bei Homer, wo ihre Zahl wie die der Musen nicht eindeutig ist; es ist jedoch klar, daß mehr als eine existierte und nicht alle gleich alt waren. Hera verspricht Hypnos, ihm Pasithee, eine der jüngeren Ch., die er begehrt, zur Frau zu geben (Hom. Il. 14,267-276). In Il. 18,382f. ist eine Ch. auch Frau des Hephaistos, der in der Odyssee ja mit Aphrodite verheiratet ist.…

Daphnephoria

(355 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[English version] (Δαφνηφορία). Ritus, der wohl überall dort vollzogen wurde, wo Apollon das Epitheton daphnēphóros (“Zweigträger”) trug (z.B. IG IX 2, 1027). Belegt ist nur das thebanische Ritual; Quellen sind Pindar, Proklos und Pausanias, die je ein anderes Stadium in seinem Verlauf behandeln. Die detaillierteste Beschreibung stammt von Proklos, der die von einem Mädchenchor gesungene daphnephorische Ode erklärt (Photios 321a-321b). Der Ritus soll enneaterisch (neunjährlich) abgehalten worden sein. Ein país amphithalḗs (“ringsumblühtes Kind”) führte die Prozess…

Amphiaraos

(247 words)

Author(s): Schachter, Albert (Montreal)
[English version] (Ἀμφιάραος). Argiv. Seher. Obwohl er wußte, daß die Expedition der Sieben gegen Theben zum Scheitern verurteilt war, mußte er sich dem Urteil seiner Frau Eriphyle beugen, die durch Polyneikes mit der Halskette der Harmonia bestochen worden war. Nach Homer (Od. 15,243-255) starb A. in Theben. (Genealogie: Pind. P. 8,39; Diod. 4,68,4 f.) Einer zweiten Version zufolge (evtl. Thebaïs EpGF fr. 9) wurde A. mit seinem Wagen von einer von Zeus geschaffenen Erdspalte verschlungen (Darstellung [2]). A. nahm an den Totenspielen für Pelias (Stesich. fr. 179 PMG), d…
