Ritualistic Formulae In Greek Dramatic Texts

Howard Jacobson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ritualistic formulae and acts pervade the political, legal, societal and religious life of the ancient world. In many instances there are striking similarities between the formulae of the Greco-Roman world and those of the Near East. Often illumination exists from one to the other. Here I wish to notice a few passages in Greek drama where I think such illumination is possible.
