Ambivius Turpio

(131 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[English version] Impresario, Regisseur und Schauspieler, Direktor einer Schauspielertruppe in Rom im 2. Jh. v. Chr. Im Sinne der die Spiele ausrichtenden Aediles sorgte er für erfolgreiche Aufführungen, förderte aber zugleich die Autoren seines Vertrauens: Caecilius und bes. Terentius. Dessen Phormio spielte er zur vollen Zufriedenheit des Dichters (Donat zu Ter. Phorm. 315). Zweimal übernahm er auch die Rolle eines werbenden und kämpferischen Prologus: zum Heautontimorumenos und zur 3. Aufführung der Hecyra (160 v. Chr.). Sein Eintreten für geistvolle Komik und r…

(Λύκων). [English version] [1] Athener Ende 5. Jh. v. Chr. Athener, unterstützte um 420 v.Chr. den Aufstand des Pissuthnes gegen den Großkönig. Von Tissaphernes bestochen, fiel L. von Pissuthnes ab und erhielt zur Belohnung einige Städte als Herrschaftsgebiet (Ktesias FGrH 688 F 15,53).

Manducus

(158 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[English version] Röm. Maskenfigur mit etym. durchsichtigem Namen (vom Verbum mandere/ manducare abgeleitet, bedeutet er “Kauer”, “Fresser”), doch von ungeklärter Herkunft. Nach Paul. Fest. 115 L. wurde M. im feierlichen Umzug bei den Circusspielen ( pompa circensis; vgl. [1]) als ein Gelächter und Schrecken erregender, mit den Kiefern knirschender Unhold mitgeführt. Wenn wir Varro (ling. 7,95) folgen, scheint dieser M. nachträglich Eingang in die improvisatorische Atellana fabula gefunden zu haben, wo er mit dem Typus des Dossennus [1] (des…

Deuteragonistes

(134 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[English version] (δευτεραγωνιστής). “Zweiter Schauspieler”, von Aischylos eingeführt, doch ist die Bezeichnung d. jünger. Während der “erste Schauspieler” ( prōtagōnistḗs) traditionell die Hauptrolle übernahm ( Átossa, Oidípus, Médeia) und sich mit dieser identifizieren konnte, hatte der d. - erst recht der “dritte Schauspieler” ( tritagōnistḗs) - eine Vielzahl verschiedener Rollen zu bewältigen. Die dem d. zufallende Textmenge war beträchtlich, schneller Maskenwechsel verlangte großes deklamatorisches Können, brachte aber im Vergleich zur Rolle d…

Hypokrites

(1,150 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
(ὑποκριτής). [English version] I. Begriff Das zugrundeliegende Verbum ὑποκρίνομαι ( hypokrínomai) bedeutet bei Homer “auf Anfrage eine Entscheidung treffen”, “deuten” (von Vorzeichen: Hom. Il. 12,228 oder Träumen: Hom. Od. 19,535; 555) bzw. “antworten” (Hom. Od. 2,111). Als Grundbed. für das erst im 5. Jh. v.Chr. bezeugte Nomen h. wurde darum bald “Antworter” (auf Fragen des Chorführers), bald “Deuter” (des Mythos, den der Chor vortrug) postuliert. Es bezeichnet den Sprecher, der den Sängern des Tragödien- oder Komödienchors entgegentrat un…

Aesopus, Clodius

(155 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[English version] Tragödienschauspieler in Rom im 1. Jh. v. Chr.; angesehener Freigelassener ( nostri familiaris Cic. ad Q. fr. 1,2,14), als Star zu Reichtum gelangt. Verstreute Notizen ergeben kein einheitliches Bild seiner Kunst. Als Atreus soll er, vom Pathos hingerissen, einen Diener mit dem Szepter erschlagen haben (Plut. Cicero 5,5), doch Cicero nennt sein Wüten simuliert (Cic. Tusc. 4,55). Man rühmte sein Mienenspiel (Cic. div. 1,80), Fronto aber (p. 143,13-14) hebt gerade das intensive Maskenstudium h…

Histrio

(1,036 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[English version] I. Begriff Bezeichnung für den röm. Schauspieler. Livius (7,2: nach Varro) berichtet, daß man nach einer Pestepidemie im J. 364 v.Chr. Tänzer ( ludiones) mit einem Flötenspieler aus Etrurien geholt habe, um mit einer kult. Zeremonie die Stadt zu reinigen. Die einheimische Jugend habe deren Tänze nachgeahmt und mit Spottversen ausgestaltet, bis schließlich professionelle Künstler, denen man das etr. Wort h. beigelegt habe, ihr Stegreifspiel weiterentwickelt hätten. Dem habe Livius Andronicus nur noch eine Fabel hinzufügen müssen, um die Tr…

(Λύκων; Lýkōn). [German version] [1] Athenian, late 5th cent. BC Athenian, supported the rebellion of Pissuthnes against the Great King around 420 BC. Bribed by Tissaphernes, L. fell away from Pissuthnes and received several cities as territory under his rule in recompense (Ctesias FGrH 688 F 15,53). Schmitz, Winfried (Bielefeld) [German version] [2] Prosecutor of Socrates Prosecutor of Socrates (Pl. Ap. 23e; 36a); satirized by comedians (Eupolis fr. 61; 232; Metagenes fr. 10 PCG; schol.

Ambivius Turpio

(143 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] Impresario, director and actor; leader of a troupe of actors in Rome in the 2nd cent. BC. He provided successful performances for the aediles who organized the plays, at the same time supporting authors who enjoyed his confidence:  Caecilius and esp.  Terentius. He performed the latter's Phormio to the author's entire satisfaction (Donatus on Ter. Phorm. 315). He also twice took on the role of a supportive and combative prologue: for the Heautontimoroumenos and for the 3rd performance of the Hecyra (160 BC). His advocacy of intellectual comedy and purity of diction ( pura…

Masada

(348 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: Dead Sea (textual finds) (Greek Μασάδα, Masáda; Hebrew mṣdh, Arabic Tall al-Sab). The name, which is recorded only in Greek and Latin, is probably derived from the Aramaic meṣādā (‘fortress’). It stands in isolation on a rocky plateau on the western shore of the Dead Sea, a rhomboid 600 m north-south and 300 m east-west; 50 m above sea-level with steep cliffs c. 350 m above ground level in the east and c. 150 m in the west. Jos. BI 7,280-294 offers a detailed description, and it is mentioned in Plin. HN 5,73 and S…

Masks

(1,705 words)

Author(s): Niemeyer, Hans Georg (Hamburg) | Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] I. Phoenicia Facial masks and head protomes (also shortened human representations including the neck and shoulder part) are a common type of monument since the 9th/8th cent. BC in the Phoenician-Punic world. They spread from the Levant (here going back to the 2nd millennium, e.g. in Tell Qāṣila, also from Tyrus, Amrīt, Akhzib, Hazor, Sarepta etc.) via Cyprus, Carthage, Sicily (Motya), Sardinia and Ibiza into the far west (Cadiz). The masks (with openings for eyes and mouth) mostly …

Mechane

(320 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] The Greeks called any mechanical device μηχανή but in the narrow sense it referred to the Greek theatre machinery: a crane installed behind the stage as a flying apparatus that can be swung into the scene to take the characters in a drama to a remote location or cause gods to appear up high. The mechane is referred to in drama texts and later sources under many names: κρεμάθρα ( kremáthra, ‘suspension device’, Aristoph. Nub. 218), γέρανος ( géranos, ‘crane’ [in both senses], Poll. 4,130), αἰώρημα ( aiṓrēma, ‘swing’, schol. Aristoph. Pax 80), κράδη ( krádē, ‘fig branch’, Ari…

Callippides

(224 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] (Καλλιππίδης; Kallippídēs). Tragic actor of the 5th/4th cents. BC, who, popular and controversial, was remembered long after his death. He himself was many times the victorious  protagonist, for example at the Lenaia of the year 418, but the tetralogy of his poet did not win a prize [1]. His expressive gesticulation, aimed at producing a realistic effect, was modern in its style; it displeased Mynniscus who had once appeared with Aeschylus and who described the young colleague as a…

Theorikon

(135 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] (θεωρικόν; theōrikón). Public payment to Attic citizens for participating in festivals, particularly dramatic performances. The introduction of the t. (also in the plural θεωρικά/ theōriká sc. χρήματα/ chrḗmata) was sometimes ascribed to Pericles [1], who was suspected of bribing the people with it (Plut. Pericles 9), sometimes to Agyrrhius, who c. 400 BC had expenses paid to participants in the Ekklēsía; there is no contemporary evidence, however. Apparently, Eubulus [1] was c. 350 the first to regularly use public money for subsidising visits to th…

Theodorus

[German version] I Greek (Θεόδωρος; Theódōros). [German version] [I 1] Of Samos, Greek architect, bronze sculptor and inventor, Archaic period Multitalented Greek inventor, architect, bronze sculptor and metal worker ( toreutḗs; Toreutics) of the Archaic period from Samos (for the occupational image cf. architect). His father was Telecles (Hdt. 3,41; Paus. 8,14,8; 10,38,6) or according to other sources (Diog. Laert. 2,103; Diod. Sic. 1,98) Rhoecus [3]; his name is so frequently mentioned in conjunction with the latter that …

Deuteragonistes

(154 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] (δευτεραγωνιστής; deuteragōnistḗs). ‘Second actor’, introduced by Aeschylus, but the designation deuteragonistes is more recent. Whilst the ‘first actor’ ( prōtagōnistḗs) traditionally took on the main role ( Átossa, Oidípous, Mḗdeia) and could identify with this, the deuteragonistes ─ or even the ‘third actor’ ( tritagōnistḗs) ─ had to cope with a large number of different roles. The amount of text that had to be mastered by the deuteragonistes was considerable and rapid mask changes required great declamatory skill but brought less fame than th…

Aesopus, Clodius

(163 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
[German version] Tragedian in 1st-cent. BC Rome; respected freedman ( nostri familiaris Cic. Ad Q. Fr. 1,2,14), achieved wealth as a ‘star’. Scattered mentions provide no coherent picture of his art. In the role of Atreus, carried away by emotion, he is said to have killed a servant with his sceptre (Plut. Cicero 5,5), but  Cicero says his anger was simulated (Cic. Tusc. 4,55). His use of facial expression was praised (Cic. Div. 1,80); however Fronto (p. 143,13-14) emphasizes his intensive study of masks […

Cincius

(526 words)

Author(s): Elvers, Karl-Ludwig (Bochum) | Kierdorf, Wilhelm (Cologne) | Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
Name of a plebeian family that gained prominence during the Second Punic War (Schulze, 266). Elvers, Karl-Ludwig (Bochum) [German version] [1] C., L. Antiquarian author, 1st cent. BC? Antiquarian author probably of the late Republican period (1st cent. BC; since [6] differentiated from the historian L.C.Alimentus). Seven works of grammarian, antiquarian and legal content are known from quotes in Festus, Gellius and others (fragments: [1. 1,252ff.; 2. 71ff.]): De verbis priscis, De fastis, De comitiis, De consulum potestate, De officio iurisconsulti (at least two vols.), De re …

Hypokrites

(1,294 words)

Author(s): Blume, Horst-Dieter (Münster)
(ὑποκριτής; hypokritḗs). [German version] I. Concept The underlying verb ὑποκρίνομαι ( hypokrínomai) means in Homer ‘to make a decision upon request’, ‘to interpret’ (on omens: Hom. Il. 12,228 or dreams: Hom. Od. 19,535; 555) or ‘to answer’ (Hom. Od. 2,111). The basic meaning of the noun hypokrites, which is first attested in the 5th cent. BC, was thus postulated now as ‘answerer’ (to questions of the director of the chorus), now as ‘interpreter’ (of the myth which the chorus performed). It refers to the speaker who appeared opposite the si…
