Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the analyses of the herdsman in Greek thought. Herdsmen were surely a familiar sight in the ancient Greek countryside. Herdsmen were low-status individuals in Greek culture, and before Theocritus they appear in literature as marginal figures or somewhat more prominently only in those genres, like satyr drama or comic poetry, that feature persons "worse than ourselves".

Keywords: Greek culture; herdsman; Theocritus
