Chapter Summary

The addressee of the Pindaric ode, the winner of each battle game, is a historical figure. This chapter provides a review of the available information about the historical figures in Olympic 6, which are known from no other work (Hagesias, Phintis and Aineas), three epistemological levels: what is sure to know that, which can be supposed, and that which is beyond our knowledge. The data relating to the historical Hagesias can make the poem at the center of three passages. The chapter describes the problem of the origin and performance of the olympic 6. The unity of the olympic 6 has always been a central concern of Pindar's study. The relationship of the poet with the prophecy and the equality of the poetries and the seer are traditional topoi of Greek literature and culture. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: epistemological levels; Greek literature; historical figure; Olympic 6; Pindar's study; Pindaric ode; prophecy
