A note on the meaning of καταλέλυκε in [Ps. Xen.] Ath. Resp.

LUCA ASMONTI

Abstract


Moving from an analysis of the use and meanings of καταλύειν, thisarticle argues that in [Ps. Xen.] Ath. Resp. 1.13. this verb is chosen forits strong political and ethical connotations, to describe, in a deliberatelyemphatic and rhetorical manner, the supposed decline of music andathletics in democratic Athens as a process of political subversion.
