Sample text

42 Gagarin (1976), 46–50, sees the emphasis on divine intervention but unduly minimizes Xerxes’ hybris and impiety, thus leaving the gods’ actions oddly unmotivated. Xerxes’ misconduct, folly, irrationality, and overreaching, in fact, gain repeated mention. Cf. S. Said (1981), 18–20. 43 The elders here herald a fundamental leitmotif of the tragedy: control and manipulation by divine powers. 44 The herald who announced the disastrous debacle at Salamis made certain that the queen would be under no misapprehension.

When the ghost of Darius emerges from his abode beneath the earth and learns of the catastrophe, he draws the same conclusion. 53 Darius recalls divine prophecies issued by Zeus Aesch. Pers. 93–114. Aesch. Pers. 293–294: ἀνάγκη πημονὰς βροτοῖς φέρειν/ θεῶν διδόντων. 45 Aesch. Pers. 344–347. See Garvie (2009), 177–178. This is the only allusion in the play to Athena. E.

In this matter, as in others, Persians did not consistently live up to such principles (they did, after all, burn shrines in Naxos). 130 Herod. 3: λήματι μέν νυν καὶ ῥώμῃ ούκ ἤσσονεϚ ἦσαν οἱ ∏έρσαι, ἄνοπλοι δὲ ἐόντες καὶ πρὸς ἀνεπιστήμ0νεϚ ἦσαν καὶ οὐκ ὅμοιοι τοῖσι ἐναντί0ισι σ0φίην.
