Brian McPhee
Hymnody, Hero Cult, and Pharaonic Ideology in Apollonius’ Argonautica

In the capital of Ptolemaic Egypt in the third-century BCE, the Greek poet Apollonius of Rhodes made the surprising decision to frame his epic poem, the Argonautica, as a hymn dedicated to its own protagonists, the mythical crew of the Argo. This talk seeks to contextualize Apollonius’ innovative fusion of the genres of epic and hymn in Ptolemaic Alexandria by exploring his poem’s points of contact with the Greek practice of worshipping heroes and the Egyptian practice of worshipping the Pharaoh.

Brian McPhee is the Arthur Ross Rome Prize Fellow in Ancient Studies and PhD Candidate, Department of Classics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
