Abstract

The paper concerns Callimachus’ Hymn to Demeter and proposes a reading of it in the light of the latest archaeological excavations in the city of Cyrene and in the area around it: more specifically, the remarkable discovery of the shrine of Demeter, the goddess to whom the Callimachaean Hymn is dedicated. In this case, it seems necessary to relate the evidence of archaeological, topographic and historical data as a whole, to the poetic text, specially to the mythical memory, the ritual practice, the literary mimesis proved by the Hymn. With a view to thi aim,the text is re-examined, with particolar attention to the lyric genre and its rules, the treatment of the myth, the performative occasion, the kind of the public, the ways of communication.
