Abstract This paper argues that Pythian 6 was reperformed at the premier of Isthmian 2. The audience’s reception of the two performances is explored, as well as the social and performative agenda of Isthmian 2. It is argued that this joint performance had a specific social utility: to direct the audience to construe Thrasyboulos as the heir to his father’s status and honour.
