Synopsis

These thirty essays were presented to Alan L Boegehold, a distinguished philologist and an inspirational teacher, on the occasion of his retirement and his seventy-fifth birthday. The contributions fall into two categories, each one reflecting Boegehold's diverse interests in classical studies: the first section includes essays on literary and philosophical topics, several of which pick up on the theme of "gestures"; the second section is representative of Boegehold's more specialised research in Greek epigraphy, history and law. Contents: Biography of Alan L Boeghold; A divine audience for the celebration of Asopichus' victory in Pindar's Fourteenth Olympian Ode (L Athanassaki) ; Poi de kai pothen ; self-motion in Plato's Phaedrus (G W Bakewell) ; Drinking from the sources: John Barton's Tantalus and the epic cycle (D Boedeker) ; Mania and melancholy: Some Stoic texts on insanity (M Graver) ; A gesture in Archilochos 118 (West)?
