Atena Ἀξιόποινος (Paus. III 15, 6) digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
This paper suggests a comparative perspective on the interpretation of Athena Ἀξιόποινος (Paus. III 15, 6) as ‘who gives/has appropriate reparation’. In particular, the common features shared by the Anatolian goddess Maliya (= Gk. Athena) and A. Ἀξιόποινος will be discussed...

Ancora sugli infiniti aoristi in -έειν digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
The Homeric aorist infinitives in -έειν do not arise from a linguistic choice of an Ionian singer, but from his poetic performance; their origin is the ‘distension’ in two syllables of the Ionic ending -εῖν, possibly caused by the circumflex accent. In this perspective the aorist infinitives in -έειν are a specific case of the Homeric diektasis...

Linguaggio classico e risurrezione in un epigramma funerario cristiano (SGO 14/06/12) digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
This paper analyses a Greek funerary epigram from Laodicea (SGO 14/06/12) which shows the introduction of evident Christian elements within a classical background. The short inscription is characterized by a traditional epic and epigrammatic language and other expressions derived from Christianity, such as the name of Christ, the reference to the ecclesiastical role of a character, and above all to the resurrection, leading, thus, to a new temporary function of the tomb, which protects the body of the deceased only until his return to life...

L’omologia ape-ninfa per l’interpretazione della Fabula Aristaei digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
The aim of this paper is to provide some new elements to understand why in Vergil’s Fabula Aristaei (Georg. IV 315-558) we are told the never before coupled myths of Aristaeus and Orpheus, which have the task to explain the aition of bougonia. One key element could be the ancient mythical (i.e. Greek) and linguistic (i.e. Aeagean-Canaanite) homology by which we are shown that the *bee and the *nymph were paired, actually being the same creature (νύμφη-μέλισσα = the honey-making bee) that only later split into two different features...

Ἐπιρνύτιος · Ζεὺς ἐν Κρήτῃ digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
The obscure epithet Ἐπιρνύτιος· Ζεὺς ἐν Κρήτῃ (Hesychius), to be analysed as Ἐπι-ρνύτιος (as proposed by Martín S. Ruipérez) conceals [epırnutios], i.e. an old compound with ἐπι°, the second member of which is an onomastic derivative of °ρνυ- (*°Hr-nu-), which may be traced back to *°h3r-nu- (ὄρνυ-) or to *°h1r-nu- (ἔρετο· ὡρμήθη)...

L’Artemide ‘dei cervi’ e ‘dell’Alfeo’ in Elide digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 11/2016
According to Pausanias (VI 22, 8-11), Artemis was worshipped in Elis with, among others, the epithets Ἀλφιαία (Letrinoi) and Ἐλαφιαία: the former would be based on the river name Ἀλφε(ι)ός/Ἀλφιός, the latter on ἔλαφος ‘deer’. Some formal variants of both epithets are transmitted by other sources, namely Ἐλαφία, Ἀλφειονία, Ἀλφειοῦσα (Strab.), Ἀλφειῶσα (Athen.), Ἀλφειώα (Schol. in Pind.)...

Αἰγλήτης e Ἀσγελάτας: tra concorrenza etimologica e sincretismo religioso nell’isola di Anafe digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
In the island of Anafi, belonging to the Cyclades, are attested two epithets of Apollo, Αἰγλήτης and Ἀσγελάτας. In this paper, I argue that these two terms are indipendent from each other in both meaning and etymology. It is likely that they represent two different cults of Apollo which developed in the island during the archaic period. Over time the cults lose their distinctive features and the formal similarity of the words leads to the overlapping of the two epithets...

Apollodoro e gli epiteti di Hermes ἐριούνιος, σῶκος e ἀκάκητα. Note al testo di Cornuto, Comp. 16.3 e Ap. Soph. s.v. σῶκος (148, 15-22 Bekker) digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
Apollodorus’ interpretation of Hermes’ epithets ἀκάκητα, σῶκος and ἐριούνιος, from his theological treatise Περὶ θεῶν, can be reconstructed comparing the most important (and chronological near) witnesses of the work, the Homeric lexicon by Apollonius the Sophist (I sec. AD?), Cornutus’ allegorical manual (I sec. AD) and the Homeric allegories by Eraclitus (I-II AD). Apollonius’ lexicon is fundamental, inasmuch its author is not interested in altering Apollodorus’ interpretations. According to this reconstruction, Apollodorus intented ἐριούνιος as the «helpful» (from ὀνίνημι), σῶκος as the «strong» (from the Attic verb σωκέω, «to have the strength») – in this case Cornutus is useful to integrate Apollonius’ text – ἀκάκητα as the «giver of no evil» (perfectly complementary of the Homeric epithet δώτωρ ἐάων, «giver of goods»). These epithets reflect the highly positive nature of the god, seen by Apollodorus as the «reason» (λόγος). F. 5 Bernabé from the poem Phoronis, quoted in Et.M. s.v. ἐριούνιος, probably is mediated through Apollodorus’ Περὶ θεῶν (Appendix)...

Hera Θελξίνη (SEG 26:1211) e altri incantatori: epitheta deorum in θελξι° digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2014 - 14
Anno: 2014
The paper deals with the interpretation of Hera’s epithet Θελξίνη (Magna Graecia, 4th cent. B.C.), which is probably connected with θέλγω ‘enchant’, ‘bewitch’, ‘beguile’. Most of the phraseological collocations of this verb are reflected by τερψίμβροτος-compounds with first component θελξι°: these are frequently attributed, as mythological names or divine epithets, to supernatural figures provided with a beguiling function (Muses, Sirens, Erotes, Aphrodite, Apollon, Dionysos)...
