Symposium and Komos in Aristophanes, second edition
     

Symposium and Komos in Aristophanes, second edition

by Babette Putz
 

Feasting, wine, revellers and dancing girls; the modern image of ancient Greek symposia is an enduring one. Many symposia were more formal affairs; drinking-parties after which a komos, or procession of revellers often took place, with much protocol involved. Many accounts survive in ancient literature, as well as depictions on vase paintings.
