Dictys Cretensis

(147 words)

Author(s): Dingel, Joachim (Hamburg)
[German version] ‘Dictys of Crete’ is the fictitious author of an alleged, laboriously corroborated authentic eyewitness account of the Trojan War ( Ephemerìs toû Troikoû polémou). It not only includes a prelude that omits the judgement of Paris, but also relates the fate of the returning heroes. Only a few fragments remain of a possibly 2nd-cent. AD (?) Greek original, though we have a rendering in Latin by one L. Septimius some two cents. later. His 6 vols. are made to resemble the Commentaries of  Caesar, with echoes of the style of Sallust. The work is strongly anti-Trojan…

[German version] The so-called PL are made up of eleven jointly transmitted Latin orations to emperors and Pliny's [2] speech of thanks to Trajan (which is prefixed as a classical model and the only one with an independent transmission). The eleven orations were given on various occasions in Gaul between 289 and AD 389, most of them in the presence of an Augustus or a Caesar (Tetrarchy; Pan. Lat. 7 before  Maximianus [1] and Constantinus [1] I). Some orators are known by name: Eumenius (first a te…

Troy, romance of

(1,021 words)

Author(s): Dingel, Joachim (Hamburg)
[German version] I. Concept and characteristics The term romance of Troy is here used to refer to a number of ancient prose texts predating the Trojan epics of the Middle Ages, particularly the tales of Dictys Cretensis and Dares [3] Phrygius, which were composed in Late Antiquity. To be sure, the ambition of these and similar works was certainly not to be a romance or novel (Novel); whether in a playful or serious manner, they claim to tell the truth about the Trojan War. In that effort, they sometim…

Panegyrics

Author(s): Fornaro, Sotera (Sassari) | Dingel, Joachim (Hamburg) | Berger, Albrecht (Berlin)
[German version] I. Greek The modern term 'panegyric' derives from πανηγυρικός ( panēgyrikós sc. λόγος/ lógos), a Greek term denoting a speech delivered during a πανήγυρις ( panḗgyris), a real or fictive 'festival', e.g. the Olympic Games. In the fictive sense →Isocrates was the first to call his fourth speech (389 BC) a Panēgyrikós (Isoc. Or. 59 and 84, 12,172; Letter 3,6; cf. Aristot. Rh. 1408b 15-17). In the broadest sense of the word, the forms of the epideictic genre ('display speech', epídeixis; → genera causarum) belong to panegyric oratory; in the rhetorical treatises of…

[English version] I. Griechisch Der Begriff P. ist eine moderne Weiterbildung zu πανηγυρικός ( panēgyrikós sc. λόγος/ lógos); der griech. Begriff bezeichnet eine Rede, die während einer πανήγυρις ( panḗgyris), “Festversammlung”, gehalten wurde, z.B. bei den Olympischen Spielen - wirklich oder in der Fiktion.

Sextius

Author(s): Elvers, Karl-Ludwig (Bochum) | Dingel, Joachim (Hamburg) | Fündling, Jörg (Bonn) | Müller, Christian (Bochum) | Eck, Werner (Cologne)
Roman nomen gentile, also confused with Sestius . According to tradition, the family achieved prominence in the 4th cent. BC with S. [I 6] who obtained access to the consulate for plebeians. The family was unimportant under the Republic, with the exception of S. [1 3]; the branch which was best known into the 3rd cent. AD originated with Caesar's follower S. [I 2], but it made spurious claims to be descended from the first plebeian consul S. [I 6] (hence the epithets Africanus and Laterensis). Elvers, Karl-Ludwig (Bochum) I. Republican period [German version] [I 1] S., Q. Founder of t…
