Theme: Callimachus Revisited: New Perspectives in Callimachean Scholarship
Location: Groningen University, The Netherlands
Organising committee: Jacqueline Klooster, RUG; Martine Cuypers, Trinity College Dublin.
The Groningen Workshops on Hellenistic Poetry have over the past 25 years provided an important venue for the presentation of new ideas in the field of Hellenistic poetry. In September 2017 the instigator and organizer of these workshops, Professor Annette Harder, will be retiring from the University of Groningen, which means that an end of the workshops in their present form is imminent.
To honor Annette Harder and fittingly celebrate her career in the service of Hellenistic poetry, whose acme has undoubtedly been the publication of a monumental new edition of Callimachus’ Aetia (OUP 2012), we are organizing a final Groningen Workshop entitled,’Callimachus Revisited’, on September 12-14, 2017.
Callimachus formed the focus of the first Groningen workshop in 1992, and was revisited in 2002. It seems fitting to close the series by returning to this central poet once more, ask how our understanding of Callimachus has developed over the past 25 years, and consider future directions.
The workshop will co-incide with Annette Harder’s Valedictory Lecture, on 14 September, 2017.
Unlike previous editions, there has been no open Call for Papers this year, as all speakers have been especially selected for this special occasion to reflect the history of the workshop. Confirmed speakers: Richard Hunter, James Clauss, Alex Sens, Peter Bing, Susan Stephens, Damien Nelis, Benjamin-Acosta Hughes, Adolf Köhnken, Ewen Bowie, Jackie Murray, Robert Kirstein, Jan Kwapisz, Frederick Williams, Evian Sistakou, Kathryn Gutzwiller, Floris Overduin.
To participate, as respondent to one of the papers, or as an auditor, please fill in the application form before May 31, 2017:
If you would like to respond to one of the papers, please say so in the section ‘further remarks’, and we will get in touch about the possibilities.
A conference fee of 100 euro (staff) / 50 euro (students) applies.

Connecting people or promoting diversity? Endorsing diplomatic affinities among empires and local communities by forging social bonds between ethnically and culturally diverse people, or instigating social conflicts based on varied group identities within major urban centres? What was the driving force in communicating and sharing heterogeneous cult practices and beliefs among the populations of the Hellenistic World? The conference will discuss how and whether religious interactions helped achieve a successful operation of institutions and whether they contributed to the cohesion of the peoples in the Hellenistic empires. The area covered stretches from Sicily and Italy to Bactria.
The issues that will be addressed include: the role of cult practices and religious beliefs in the emergence and development of the socio-political and cultural interface of the Hellenistic World; how and whether rulers promoted religious interactions in order to achieve social cohesion; what were the major effects of the social policies and initiatives related to cult affairs that were implemented by non-royal social agents; the development of shared cult practices among ethnically and culturally diverse agents and cult participants as a key factor in acculturation processes in metropoleis and smaller communities; the evolution of religious institutions and sacred spaces both in local and regional socio-cultural contexts; the role of interconnectivity and communication networks; religious diversity and modes of exchange between Greek and non-Greek traditions of religious practice and thought; the nature and motivation behind the wide distribution of certain deities and cult practices; the role of private groups and associations; one’s gods and the gods of the others ̶ perception of self and the ‘other’ as a medium of self-representation within the Hellenistic cosmos.

This is the first book on athletics in the Hellenistic era, with 16 contributions covering a range of historical, archaeological and philological perspectives. Previous scholarship has focused primarily on the classical age and the Roman imperial period, but it was in the Hellenistic age that Greek sport saw several important developments: the spread of Greek athletic culture in the East following the campaigns of Alexander the Great, the foundation of new athletic contests, and the emergence of a professional association of athletes. Topics discussed in this volume include how agonistic victories were exploited in legitimating (some) Hellenistic kings, the value placed on athletic prowess in the lively urban culture of this time, the role of sport in defining Greek identity, and the changing modes of representation of athletic action in literature and the arts. In emphasizing the central place of athletics in Greek culture, these papers offer new insights and will have far-reaching implications for our understanding of the wider political and social history of the Hellenistic period.
Translated into an English ‘Choliambic’ Metre with Literary-Historical Introductions and Notes by Anna Rist
Londres-New York, Bloomsbury Academic, 2016.
ISBN : 9781350004207
The third-century BC Greek poet Herodas had been all but forgotten until a papyrus of eight of his Mimiambs (plus fragments) turned up in the Egyptian desert at the end of the 19th century. They have since been translated into various modern languages and supplied with scholarly commentaries. This book is the first to attempt to reproduce in English Herodas’ ‘choliambic’ or ‘limping’ metre (sic) – distinctive for its signatory reversed final foot, a variant on the standard Greek iambic trimeter. The present volume provides an accessible introduction to Herodas and his Mimiambs requiring no knowledge of Greek. The translation steers a judicious course between literal accuracy and fidelity to this linguistically very demanding poet’s spirit and intention. The contextual introductions and notes on the poems take into account the most recent scholarship, providing explanation of the context of the Mimiambs and guiding the reader to an appreciation of the poetry itself. The General Introduction places the author in his cultural world and context, namely urban society in the Ptolemaic Empire of the hellenistic period. This he conjures up in his Mimiambs with an often scathing vividness.

Reines, impératrices, mères ou sœurs de dirigeants : entre l’Égypte de Cléopâtre et la Rome de Néron, elles ont toutes participé aux jeux politiques. Ce livre donne des clés pour comprendre le rôle des femmes influentes et la relation qu’elles entretenaient avec le pouvoir dans les mondes antiques.
This book offers scholars and students of Hellenistic and Roman literature an overview of Hellenistic epigram, a field closely related to other Hellenistic poetry and highly influential upon Roman poetry. In fourteen themed chapters, it foregrounds the literary, linguistic, historical, epigraphic, social, political, ethnic, cultic, onomastic, local, topographical and patronage contexts within which Hellenistic epigrams were composed. Many epigrams are analysed in detail and new interpretations of them proposed. Throughout, the question is asked whether epigrams are literary jeux d’esprit (as is often assumed without proper discussion) or whether they relate to real people and real events and have a function in the real world. That function may be epigraphic, for example an epigram can be the epitymbion for inscription at someone’s grave, or the anathematikon for inscription on or beside a dedicated object, or a picture-label – an ekphrasis to accompany a painting or mosaic.

This site contains a Greek text, English translation, notes, and vocabulary for Aetia (Αἴτια, « Causes ») by the Alexandrian poet Callimachus (310/305–240 BC), along with an introduction, an interactive map of places mentioned, a bibliography, and images of the papyrus fragments on which the text is largely based.
Aetia is a collection of elegiac poems in four books that deals with the foundation of cities, unusual religious ceremonies, and unique local traditions from around the Greek world. It survives not in manuscript form but in papyrus fragments and quotations by later authors. This site is not a complete collection of every identifiable scrap of the Aetia, as is Annette Harder’s monumental print edition (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2012). But all coherent, understandable fragments are included, as well as some very short fragments with good explanatory scholia (commentary by ancient scholars).
This project was originally conceived by Prof. Susan Stephens of Stanford University, as a way to achieve four goals:
- increase access among classicists at every career stage (from undergraduate to senior scholar) to the fragmentary text of the Aetia
- provide a format for an exchange of information for scholars who are working on aspects of the poem
- allow immediate integration of new papyrus finds
- use the visual and spatial capabilities of the web
It began with the collaboration of colleagues at Stanford University, including Fred Porta, and The Ohio State University in 2010, including Benjamin Acosta-Hughes and Aaron Palmore. When the Stanford-OSU team encountered technical difficulties in 2012, DCC inherited a draft of the content, and the present Drupal site was created under my supervision, beginning in January 2013. Prof. Stephens wrote the notes and introductory material. The translation is by Fred Porta (Stanford), thoroughly revised by Meagan Ayer (Dickinson; Ph.D., Classics, University at Buffalo, 2012). Daniel Plekhov (Dickinson ’14) created the table of contents and revised the Greek text. The vocabulary lists derive from a dictionary initially created by Aaron Palmore (OSU) and Fred Porta (Stanford). Katie Cantwell (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Nicholas Stender (Dickinson ’15), and Meagan Ayer edited and expanded this list into fuller running lists that conform to the DCC house style: all words not included in the DCC Core Greek Vocabulary are glossed. I further edited these lists and inserted links to Smith’s Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography Mythology (as digitized at Perseus) and to other reference works as appropriate. Meagan Ayer further edited and formatted the Greek text. She collected a comprehensive list of places mentioned in the Aetia and inserted links to Pleiades for each one in the notes and vocabulary fields. She also collected a comprehensive list of the papyrological sources of the text, inserting into the notes fields links to the authoritative database of metadata at Trismegistos. Katy Purington (Dickinson ’15) created the map of places mentioned in the Aetia, using MapBox. The original DCC format was designed by Chris Stamas, and the sites are created and maintained on the technical side by Dickinson web developer Ryan Burke.
The creation of this site was made possible by the Roberts Fund for Classical Studies at Dickinson College, at Dickinson’s Department of Classical Studies and the Mellon Fund for Digital Humanities at Dickinson College, and the Department of Classics at Stanford University.
For the Greek text we have employed the editorial supplements in the edition of Rudolf Pfeiffer (Callimachus: vol. 1, Fragmenta. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1949), though in a number of places it has been updated to include new finds and the the work of subsequent scholars on Pfeiffer’s text. The majority of these have been incorporated into the texts of Annette Harder. To aid in readability, papyrological notations have been kept to a minimum. Square brackets indicate editorial supplements, which are presented in gray. There are no sublinear dots to indicate doubtful letters, since images of the texts will reveal this information. Iota subscripts and traditional sigmas have been used throughout. In some instances fragments have been truncated, with only those sections which are fully legible and coherent presented. The same applies to the scholia (comments by ancient scholars that often appear on the papyri) and diegeseis (explanatory mythological narratives written by ancient scholars).
I would like to thank Prof. Stephens and everyone who helped make this site possible. If you have a suggestion, or would like to contribute and improve the site, please let me know, or use the « suggest an edit » links on the text pages.

This study focuses on the reception of tragedy and the tragic in Hellenistic poetry. It illustrates how classical tragedy and the tragic idea were incorporated in the poems of Callimachus and Theocritus, Apollonius’ Argonautica, the iambic Alexandra and late Hellenistic poetry. It demonstrates that ‘the tragic’ was not doomed to failure in the postclassical world but lived on through the works of the great Alexandrian poets and their followers.

A major new collection of use to all students and scholars working on Hellenistic Greek poetry
This collection of texts is designed to supplement those currently available for use in courses on Hellenistic poetry. Most have never before appeared in a similar collection; several have only recently been discovered. The individual commentaries have been written by the leading international scholars on Hellenistic poetry, and are designed to help the reader with more difficult aspects of the language, as well as to provide some basic guidance to each poem’s literary value and relevant scholarship.
The text of each poem is presented, together with basic help on obscure vocabulary, morphology, dialect, meter, syntax, and similar philological issues. The modern commentators also offer guidance on a poem’s literary significance and a brief introduction to the scholarship.
Among the 44 named and anonymous poets represented here are Apollonius of Rhodes, Archimedes, Aristotle, Callimachus, Cercidas, Corinna, Eratosthenes, Erinna, Ezekiel, Hermesianax, Herodas, Lycophron, and Phanocles.
Contributors to the volume in addition to David Sider include: Silvia Barbantani, James Clauss, Dee Clayman, Christophe Cusset, Claudio De Stefani, Marco Fantuzzi, Andrew Ford, Kathryn Gutzwiller, Johanna Hanink, Regina Hoeschele, Richard Hunter, David Konstan, Pauline LeVen, Kelly MacFarlane, Enrico Magnelli, Jackie Murray, Pura Nieto, Maria Noussia, Douglas Olson, Floris Overduin, Richard Rawles, Ralph Rosen, Chad Schroeder, Alexander Sens, Evina Sistakou, Michael Tueller, and Athanassios Vergados.
Although designed primarily as a textbook for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates, the book offers texts and subsidiary information not easily found (if at all) elsewhere. Since Latin poets made constant allusion to Hellenistic poetry, it will also be an important resource for Latinists.
David Sider is Professor of Classics at New York University.
