Abstract

ABSTRACT:

The first word of the mythical section in Bacchylides 19 is disputed, and this article offers an emendation. I analyze the Io story in a way that shows its multiple affinity to the epic tradition (Homer, Hesiod, the Theban Cycle). To support my emendation, I argue that micro- and macro-contextual analysis is integral for understanding how textual criticism benefits from the compositional mannerism of circularity, which Bacchylides' dithyramb instantiates.
