DVE INTERPRETÁCIE PINDAROVÝCH VERŠOV
Two interpretations of Pindar’s verses
Languages of publication
The article examines two interpretations of several verses of the famous Greek lyric poet Pindar. Pindar’s poem has not been preserved; probably his introductory verses were recorded by Plato in the dialogue Gorgias. However, the verses are not declaimed by Socrates, but by his greatest opponent in the dialogue – a young aspiring Athenian politician Callicles. Another author referring to the main idea of the first line of Pindar’s poem was his contemporary – historian Herodotus. The aim of the article is to compare these two interpretations.
