Het overspel van Ares en Aphrodite: lachen met Odyssee 8.266-366 in Nonnus' Dionysiaca

Berenice Verhelst UGent (2014) LAMPAS. 47(3). p.158-172
abstract
The story of Aphrodite’s adultery, sung by Demodocus in Odyssey 8, was in antiquity both well-known and controversial. Many later Greek and Latin authors refer to this myth in their works, but no one as often as Nonnus of Panopolis, the Novus Homerus of late antiquity and author of the long epic Dionysiaca. We can find references to the story in twelve separate passages. Two of them are fully developed and highly original adaptations of the story, combining humour and explicit intertextuality. They can be read as parodic sequels of the story. Both also seem to refer to the points of discussion in the Homeric scholia regarding the song of Demodocus. This article presents a full discussion of the story of Aphrodite’s adultery in the Dionysiaca, with special attention to Nonnus’ attitude towards Homer.
