Abstract

This paper argues that Pyth. 6 was reperformed at the premier of Isth. 2. The structural and thematic features that permitted the re-use of Pyth. 6 beyond the context of its own premier are explored, as well as the social and performative agenda of Isth. 2. It is argued that this joint performance had a specific social utility: to direct the audience to construe Thrasyboulos as the heir to his father’s status and honour.
