Example text

Thönges-Stringaris sees the funerary scenes as showing a symposium in the afterlife; Dentzer draws on the meaning of the Archaic period symposium for his reading of the imagery. 24 Because of the prevalence of implicit or explicit links between banquet imagery and the symposium in scholarship, the nature of a possible relationship between the two deserves closer scrutiny. The Greek symposium, a social institution that came into its own among elites during the Archaic period, was the second stage of a meal that a 8 Chapter 1 man hosted for a group of his associates.

Those elements that were visible—some of the western buildings at the foot of Kolonos Agoraios, the line of the Stoa of Attalos, the east side of the Hephaisteion, and the line of the Giants—were no doubt suggestive, but the influence of “square” = “market” seems to drive the conclusion.
