This edition presents and examines in detail the Hecale of Callimachus, perhaps the most brilliant, imaginative, and enjoyable example of Greek poetry in Ptolemaic Alexandria. Set in Attica and full of local color, the poem describes how the hero Theseus was entertained by an old woman, Hecale, on the night before he captured the monstrous bull at Marathon. Drawing on important new discoveries, this edition contains the most complete and up-to-date collection of texts and testimonia on the Hecale and discusses allusions to and imitations of the poem in later Greek and Latin poetry.
