Oper

Author(s): Meier, Mischa
Meier, Mischa [English version] A. Frühzeit - Allgemeine Charakteristik (RWG) Die Frage nach der Rezeption des ant. Dramas in der neuzeitlichen O. richtet sich weniger auf das Fortleben ant. Gattungen in der Mod. als auf eine lange Reihe wechselnder Vorstellungen und Projektionen, die die Geschichte der O. begleitet und ihre Entwicklung mehrfach entscheidend beeinflußt haben; eine Verbindung zum ant. Drama liegt aber weder histor. noch gattungsspezifisch vor. Als sich um 1600 einige Dichter und Musiker um…

Hypomeiones

(99 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa
[English version] (οἱ ὑπομείονες, wörtlich: die “Geringeren”). Im Kontext der Verschwörung des Kinadon 398 v. Chr. werden h. neben Heloten, neodamṓdeis und períoikoi als Gruppe minderberechtigter Spartaner genannt (Xen. hell. 3,3,6). Der Begriff stellte wohl keinen t.t. dar, sondern diente eher als Sammelbezeichnung für ehemalige Spartiátai , die aus unterschiedlichen Gründen und in verschiedener Weise als minderberechtigt gegenüber den hómoioi galten: Feigheit im Kampf (vgl. trésantes ) führte bei h. zu sozialer Stigmatisierung, Vermögensverlust oder Versagen in der agō…

Nauarchos

(168 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa
[English version] (ναύαρχος). Bezeichnung für einen spartan. Flottenbefehlshaber, erstmals 480 v. Chr. in den Perserkriegen belegt, als Sparta auch zu Wasser das griech. Heer kommandierte, wodurch die Einrichtung mil. Ämter erforderlich wurde. Erster n. war Eurybiades (Hdt. 8,2; 8,42). Das Amt der nauarchía wurde dann erst wieder im Peloponnesischen Krieg bedeutsam, erscheint dort als Jahresamt, das jeder Spartiate nur einmal bekleiden konnte; letzteres konnte aber umgangen werden, indem man fähige Heerführer, wie z. B. Lysandros [1], als epistoleús (Stellvertreter) ei…

Herminafrid

(117 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] King of the Thuringians c. AD 507/511-531/2. Around 510 he married  Amalaberga, the niece of the king of the Ostrogoths  Theoderic the Great, and thus became involved in his policy of alliances (Anon. Vales. 12,70; Cassiod. Var. 4,1; Iord. Get. 299; Procop. Goth. 5,12,22). H. initially ruled with his brothers Baderic and Berthar.

Hildericus, Hilderic

(135 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] Son of  Hunericus and Eudocia [2], the daughter of Valentinian III (Theoph. 5964; 6026), king of the Vandals in AD 523-530 who ended the anti-Catholic policies of his predecessors and attempted to come closer to Byzantium (he minted coins with the image of Justin I [1. 94]), while the relationship with the East Goths deteriorated considerably. The Vandal opposition under the leadership of  Gelimer therefore took advantage of a defeat of H.'s troops against Arabs in Byzacena to dep…

Patronomos

(197 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] (πατρονόμος, ‘guardian of the ancestral traditions’). Predominantly epigraphically attested title of a Spartan annual official, created in c. 227 BC by Cleomenes [6] III; the institution of this office was probably connected with the temporary abolition of the éphoroi and the limitation of the political influence of the  gerousía (Paus. 2,9,1). In the Roman period, the patronomos, attested from the 1st cent. BC as Sparta's eponymous magistrate, oversaw six sýnarchoi or synpatronómoi (cf. IG V 1,48; SEG XI 503 with [2]). The tasks of a patronomos, which were linked…

Damippus

(106 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] (Δάμιππος; Dámippos). Spartan in the service of Hieronymus of Syracuse to whom he gave the advice of adherence to the alliance with Rome in 215 BC (Pol. 7,5,3). Later he also served Epicydes; in 212 he was sent as envoy to Philip V of Macedonia, and in the process fell into the hands of the Romans. The negotiations for his release, in the course of which M. Claudius [I 11] Marcellus noticed a tower that was only poorly guarded by the Syracusans, ultimately led to the successful Roman attack on Epipolae (Liv. 25,23,8ff.; Plut. Marcellus 18; Polyaenus, Strat. 8,11). Meier, Mischa…

Euergetes

(325 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] (εὐεργέτης; euergétēs, ‘benefactor’). An honorary title bestowed by Greek communities upon people who rendered particularly outstanding services to them. There is evidence of this term with this meaning from the 5th cent. BC (cf. Hdt. 8,136), but euergesia as an aspect of the ideal of generosity of the Greek aristocracy can be traced back to the Homeric period ( Euergetism). In Athens the work of individual citizens for the polis in the 5th cent. was still primarily regulated by  liturgies and it was expected of on…

Herostratus

(117 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] (Ἡρόστρατος; Hēróstratos). Arsonist, of unknown origin, involved in the destruction of the Temple of Artemis at  Ephesus in 356 BC. Under torture he confessed that he had been motivated by a thirst for glory, whereupon the Ephesians decided that his name should never again be mentioned. According to Valerius Maximus (8,14 ext. 5), only Theopompus did not abide by that (Ael. NA 6,40; Solin. 40,2-5; Str. 14,1,22 are based on him). In fact, other sources (collected in [1. 262ff.]) do …

The obligations of the dekaprotoi, the western equivalent of which were the  Decemprimi, varied according to region and in the course of time. As a rule they represented their communities before the Roman magistrates, received the sworn public accounts of departing municipal officials and administered the community treasury. From the 2nd c…

Anytus

(172 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
[German version] (Ἀνυτος; Ánytos). Son of Anthemion, a well-to-do Athenian. In 409 BC A. was sent as commander with a fleet towards Pylos, but was forced to turn back by a storm; he was, however, cleared at the subsequent investigation -- allegedly through bribery (Diod. Si c. 13,64,6). In 404 he was banished by the ( Thirty), subsequently playing a large part in their overthrow when he joined  Thrasyboulus (Xen. Hell. 2,3,42;44), becoming like him one of the most influential Athenian politicians after 403 (Isoc. Or. 18,23). A lover of  Alc…

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)

Vand. 3,4,13). H. sough…

Messenian Wars

(351 words)

Repeated assaults by Spartan nobles against Messenians culminated ca. 700/690-680/670 (the older date, based on the list of Olympic victors for 736-716 [1. 9ff.; 2. 34] is not tenable, cf. [3; 4. 91ff.]) in the 1st Messenian War, which resulted in Spartan control over large parts of Messenia [4. 70-91]. A Messenian uprising ca. 640/30-600, …

Opera

(3,186 words)

Author(s): Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld)
Meier, Mischa (Bielefeld) [German version] A. Early Period - General Characteristics (CT) Any attempt to trace the heritage of ancient drama in modern opera must focus less on the continuation of ancient genres in the post-medieval world than on a series of changing ideas and projections that have accompanied the history of opera and have on several occasions played a decisive role in its development; however, there are no historical or genre-specific links with ancient drama. When around 1600 a group of po…
