An der Spitze aufeinander folgender Verse bzw. Zeilen (ὁ στίχος, der Vers, die Prosazeile) oder Strophen stehende Buchstaben, Silben oder Wörter, die einen sinnvollen Zusammenhang ergeben. Von dieser Besonderheit her nannte man auch das ganze Gedicht A. Wenn eine senkrechte Buchstabenreihe, u. a. durch Abstand hervorgehoben, das A. bildete, wurde dies παραστιχίς bzw. παραστιχίδιον genannt [7.81-82; 2.3-4]. Ergab sich das Alphabet, konnte man von einem Abecedarius [3.146-151, 187-8; 4. 22-26] sprechen. Ein sich zufällig ergebendes Wort ohne Sinnbezug zum Text wie λευκή (Hom. Il. 24, 1-5) ist kein A. [6. 143]. Das A. diente als Gedächtnisstütze, zum Schutz des Textes gegen Ausfall und Einschub, gab dem Leser in den Text des Werkes verwoben…

Prooemium

(1,192 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] I. Concept Greek προοίμιον/ prooímion, (tragedy:) φροίμιον/ phroímion, Latin prooemium, prohoemium: 1) hymn to the gods (as an opening), 2) introductory section of a poem, 3) beginning of a speech, 4) introduction. As was already realized in Antiquity [8. 19], prooímion is etymologically related to οἴμη ( oímē, ‘song’, ‘story’, Hom. Od. 8,74; 8,481; 22,347) and οἶμος ( oȋmos, ‘stripe’, Hom. Il. 11,24; ‘path’ = ‘song’, H. Hom. 4,451 [4. s. v. οἴμη]). Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg) [German version] II. Greek literature 1) In Greek poetry, the so-called Homeric Hymns to gods, hexametric and of varying lengths [1. 10], are known as prooímia; they were recited by rhapsodes before their performance of epic poetry (Thuc. 3,104; Hymn, I B). Socrates composed a prooímion to Apollo (Pl. Phd. 60d). 2) Terpander wrote (Plut. Mor. 1132d) prooímia as the first part of the citharodic nómos

Priamel

(300 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] The German term P riamel, neuter, but feminine since Lessing, derives from the Latin adjective praeambulus (first in Mart. Cap.; ThLL s. v. praeambulus), 'preceding'; it has been used in modern literary scholarship for small German poems of the 12th-16th cents. that place exempla in series [2; 7. 8-12]. F. Dornseiff introduced it into the interpretation of Greek and Roman literature [8. 2]. Priamels may have come into existence in many literatures because of the simplicity of their serial structure [8. 1]; in ancient texts they occur as ear…

Mandrobulus

(87 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] (Μανδρόβουλος; Mandróboulos). The theophoric name is derived from ‘Mandrus, a - deduced - god of Asia Minor. A drama by Cleophon and a dialogue by Speusippus are named after M. The proverb ἐπὶ τὰ Μανδροβούλου χωρεῖ τὸ πρᾶγμα was already no longer understood in antiquity; the ancient Paroimiographoi offered conjectures with regard to its explanation - as in Suda ε 2659, 2716 - presuming that it related to turns for the worse.…

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] A. Definition Greek ἀκροστιχίς ( akrostichís; Dion. Hal. Ant. Rom. 4,62,6), ἀκροστίχιον ( akrostíchion; Or. Sib. 11, 17 and 23) and plur. τὰ ἀκρόστιχα ( tà akrósticha; as a heading: Anth. Pal. 9,385). Letters, syllables or words that start consecutive verses or especially lines of verse (ὁ στίχος, ho stíchos; verse, lines of prose), or strophes and form a meaningful connection. As a result of this feature the whole poem also came to be known as acrostich. If a vertical row of letters, highlighted i. a. by spacing, formed the acrostich, this was termed παραστιχίς ( parastichí…

Guido

(231 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] Latin author, identified as G. Pisanus ([4], a different view in [6]); c. 1119 he wrote an encyclopaedic compilation De variis historiis (‘On various historical matters’) in 6 books. For the sections Geographica and Descriptio totius maris he excerpted the  Geographus Ravennas, following him very closely. In the Geographica he copied the latter's personal reference to Ravenna as his hometown (Geographica 20,20), but apart from that, as evidence of his education, he displays his knowledge of Classical writers and …

Timagetus

(152 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] (Τιμάγητος/ Timágētos). Author of a work Περὶ λιμένων/ Perí liménōn ('On Harbours') of at least two books surviving in seven frr., probably from the first half of the 4th cent. BC (FHG 4, 519 f.): six frr. in scholia ad Apoll. Rhod. 1,224-226a W. (otherwise FGrH 42, F 3); Apoll. Rhod. 2,1031b; 4,257-262b; 4,282-291b; 4,303-306b; 4,323-326a, one fr. in Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἀκτή/ Aktḗ (here with the name: Δημάγητος/ Dēmágētos). In these frr., no harbour is mentioned; five of them provide mythical narrative on the voyage of the Argonauts. Frr. 1-3 (FHG) are devoted to the course of the Danube (Ister [1]), where T. (fr. 2), however, unlike Apoll. Rhod. 4,284 ff., who may otherwise have used T.' work as a basis, has a branch discharge into the Tyrrhenian Sea (Mare Tyrrhenum). T.' work with its idiosyncratic information was displaced by that of Timosthenes [2]. Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg) Bibliography F. Gisin…

Aphorism

(512 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
(Ἀφορισμός; aphorismós). [German version] A. Definition Today the aphorism is an independent literary genre (on the difference from the  apophthegma [3. 29-33]); its formal distinguishing features are: the restriction with regard to the connection, the arbitrariness of the sequence of numerous aphorisms, the tight, also pointed formulation, the astute, critical, even unconventional and pro…

Palindrome

(274 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] In literary theory a palindrome, corresponding to παλίνδρομος ( palíndromos, 'running backwards'), denotes a sequence of letters - a word, sentence or verse ( versus supinus, recurrens; [2. 278f.] on Mart. 2,86,1-2; cf. Sid. Epist. 9,14,4-6) - that can also be read backwards with the same or a different sense, occasionally resulting also in the same or a different verse. A palindrome in the strict sense corresponds to itself mirror-wise from the middle outwards. Thus in Late Antiquity 'crab verse' (καρκίνος/ karkínos or καρκινωτόν/ karkinōtón) was a familiar for…

Anecdote

(403 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] A. Definition Today one understands an anecdote to be a short oral story, often with one punch line, also including some humorous words, and which has a claim to be factually representative of some specific aspect of personalities or political-social circumstances [3. 641]. Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg) [German version] B. Antiquity Initially, ἀνέκδοτος ( anékdotos) was the technical designation for unpublished texts (Diod. Sic. 1,4,6; Cic. Att. 14,17,6; Clem. Al. Strom. 1,1,14; Synesius, Ep. 154a Garzya). Certainly Cicero (Att. 2,6,2) also termed his report about his political views, which he did not publish, and that was morally strict in its judgement, ἀνέκδοτα [1. 1267]. The extending of the inherent meaning of the term anecdote started with Procopius of Caesa…

Paraklausithyron

(390 words)

Author(s): Gärtner, Hans Armin (Heidelberg)
[German version] (παρακλαυσίθυρον/ paraklausíthyron, 'lament at the door <by a lover>'). The Greek word has been handed down in Plutarch's Erōtikós (Plut. Mor. 753a/b); he mentions it in a sequence with a komos (Komast cups) at the door of a beloved, the decoration of her image, and an athletic battle with rivals (cf. Pl. Symp. 183a). Paraklausithyra, which centre on the situation of the spurned lover as one locked out ( exclusus amator) and group the other statements around it, are not found in this form in Greek literature until the Hellenistic period [4]. Its com…
