Abstract

‘Period’ indicates a certain metrical length, similar to the notion ‘verse’. In ancient rhythmical terminology it has the technical meaning of a sequence within which simple and unequal feet recur in a regular order (such as, for example, iambus and trochee). In modern scholarship it assumes the two distinct meanings, both related to the metric level, of ‘melic verse’ and ‘section of a strophe’.
