Abstract

A thorough analysis of Bacch. 3,37-39, Aesch. Ag. 182s. and Hdt. I 207,1 shows a close intertextual dialogue about the χάρις coming from the gods: “where is the χάρις of the gods?”, asks Bacchylides’ Croesus upon his pyre (and the gods will rescue him). “There is a χάρις of the gods”, answers, in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, the Chorus of Elders concluding his ‘hymn to Zeus’: “it is the πάθει μάθος-law”. “My παθήματα turned into μαθήματα”, remarks Herodotus’ Croesus – echoing Aeschylus’ words – in his dialogue with Cyrus: “but it is not a matter of χάρις”.
