ἀβλαβὲς ὕδωρ (Thcrt. XXIV 98)

García Teijeiro, Manuel

In Theocritus XXIV 98 ἀβλαβὲς ὕδωρ does not mean «water averting harm» nor «clean water». The adjective retains the Homeric sense of βλάπτω, βλάβομαι «hinder», «stop». Therefore in Theocritus' above mentioned passage its meaning is «not stagnant». In rites of purification, such as the one prescribed here by the seer Tiresias, running water had to be use.


La composición triádica del Dafnis y Cloe de Longo: contenidos expresados con tres elementos

Fernández García, Aurelio J.

This paper displays a series of facts which attract our attention in Daphnis and Chloe ’s composition. We outline three theories that try to explain them. The theory of the pictorial influence on Longo is evident. It is starting from this influence, that affects not only the contents with three elements but also the triadic morphosyntactic structures, that we can talk of poetic prose. Without this pictorial influence it would not had been triadic composition.


Reflexiones sobre los discursos de Libanio al emperador Teodosio

López Eire, Antonio

In this paper the following questions concerning Libanius’ speeches addressed to Emperor Theodosius are dealt with: Firstly, the mentioned speeches are reviewed in order to point out in them the social and political background of the age in which they were written, a very interesting age for understanding the process leading from late Antiquity to Middle Age. Secondly, the aim of these speeches is compared with that of some letters of Libanius and shown to be the same: he is proud of his profession as a sophist and claims for himself as such the duty of leading public opinion and protecting the life of the community against every kind of injustice or abuse exerted by governors or members of the upper class upon the commons and the poorest citizens. Thirdly, the question of the origin of Libanius’ attitude is envisaged; why does he feel obliged to intervene, on behalf of his fellow countrymen deploying his eloquence in fighting against power’s misuse, illegality and brutality exerted by the governors upon the lowest class of the population. According to the author, the origin of this attitude is to be found in the new conception of a Rhetoric pervaded by ethical principles that can be shown in the Isocratean program of rhetorical paideia.


Cretense πρόκορμος

Martínez Fernández, Ángel

A study on the Cretan hápax πρόκορμος, with a particular attention to the meaning of its first prepositional member, and an exam of the structure of the document on which it appears, a Gortyniam decree of manumission, of 3rd C. B.C., leads to the conclusion that in the language of Gortynian chancellery from the hellenistic period, this Cretan technical term appoints a certain official dependent on the college of kosmoi and operating as their representative, perhaps fulfilling the functions of a secretary, in certain civil acts, as in this particular case, in the release of private slaves.


El mito del drama satírico

Melero, Antonio

On the basis of Aristotle’s statement in the Poetics about the origin of Tragedy from the satyric spirit, the author examines the themes, plots, style and diction of Satyr-Play in order to define more accurately the existing relationships between the two dramatic genres especially in the treatment of the traditional myth. As a result one may say that beneath its apparent comicity, greek Satyr-Play has a ethical seriousness which can be perceived in the remaining fragments.


La grafía <σδ> en la transmisión de los líricos y de los bucólicos

Molinos Tejada, Mª Teresa

The spelling σδ for ζ is a common feature of the textual tradition of Alcaeus and Sappho, though the inscriptional evidence shows that it is a late phenomenon. Outside the Lesbian poets, there is no trace of the spelling in any other manuscript tradition than that of two Doric poets: Alcman and Theocritus. The evidence for the former is scanty, but not for Theocritus. A close examination of the manuscript data indicates that σδ was felt by the copyst to be a typical bucolic characteristic, and the papyri confirm the process of analogical extensions suffered by the medieval manuscripts.

Actitud de los cristianos ante la Retórica

Alberte González, Antonio

The author shows the different attitudes of Christian-Latin writers towards Rhetoric in his paper: frontal opposition represented by Tertulianus, vacillation represented by Hieronimus and defended acceptance by Augustinus. The author also shows the influence of stoicism upon more radical theses and the influence of Cicero on those of a more condescending attitude.


Situaciones ambiguas del género gramatical en latín tardío

González Luis, Francisco

In this paper a varied sample is presented of ambiguous situations which have been observed in late Latin. They all share the difficulty of elucidating whether they are due to ignorance of how grammatical gender really functions, or are merely copyists’ spelling errors. The paper reviews the confusion of –ae / -e / -i endings, especially in relatives; the case of arbus (instead of arbos ) in St. Isidore; the «-m falso adiecta»; the lack of gender distinction in pronominal forms; the graphic confusion of —ul—a in Visigothic writing; and, lastly, the gender inaccuracies in the Latin versions of Greek works. In all the examples examined grammatical gender appears to be weakened and obscured, and this undoubtedly has also contributed to its progressive degrammaticalization.

Diferencias semánticas entre los distintos tipos de completivas declarativas

Sánchez Salor, Eustaquio

The semantic solution to the question concerning the difference between the various types of declarative nominal subordinate clauses would be as follows: clauses which are normally constructed with infinitive only, dico Caesarem uenire, from the semantic point of view contain only the feature [+QUID], that is, they indicate only the quidditas or content of the declarative verb. Clauses constructed with quod, doleo quod non venias, contain the feature [+QUIDJ —indicating, in effect, the content of the affliction— and also the feature [UNDE] since they indicate also the origin or starting point of the affliction. Finally, those clauses constructed with ut + subjunctive, such as accidit ut omnes deicerent, like all nominal subordinate clauses contain the feature [+ QUID], given that they indicate the quidittas of the occurrence, as well as the feature [+QUOD], since they indicate also the end result produced by the situation in question.
