Although Aristotle's hymn to Areta is not an explicit expression of his moral, theological and political views, it fits them perfectly. According to the fictional thread of the poem the performers, Aristotle and his friends execute both a poetical and onthological immortalization of their friend, Hermias, when they commemorate him turning themselves into a mouthpiece of the Muses. This act of immortalization is seen as a process imagined as being fulfilled both in the present and the future recitals of the poem.
