In this article, I investigate intrageneric occurrence in dithyramb by using Bacchylides 19 as a case in point. My aim is to demonstrate how this narrative rendition of the Io story infiltrates features of the maiden-song (partheneion). Starting-point is the typology of ‘a maiden’s abduction’ from a ritual environment dedicated to a goddess, which E. Bowie designated as aetiological story for the maiden-songs. I analyse the narrative’s two references to the aetiology-laden term maiden in a context that exemplifies the epic hymn’s relation to the maiden-song.
