Four bronze cows by Myron, the Athenian sculptor, stood in front of Apollo’s temple on the Palatine hill, which Octavian dedicated in 28 BCE. They were placed close to the altar and the statue of this god, in the courtyard of the temple, whose portico was decorated with statues of the 50 daughters of Danaus. The meaning of those statues is clarified by a passage from Pausanias, who tells the story of Danaus coming to Argos and claiming kingship for himself, even if in competition with Gelanor. Suddendly a herd of cows appeared in front of the city, led by a bull. A wolf challenged him, fought, won, and became the leader of the herd. This omen pointed at Danaus as the chosen one for kingship, and he had thus a temple to Apollo built as a thanksgiving to the author of the prodigy. This was an evident comparison to the story of Octavian himself, who won the competition for political leadership in Rome thanks to Apollo.

What is ἀργός? Whiteness? Luminosity? Or, simply a range of bright shades? Having undertaken an on-going research project on the perception of colour-sense in antiquity that explores colour’s metaphorical function(s) and its social role, in this paper I shed light on bright shades in the Iliad, mainly ἀργός, and examine their contexts to investigate how the poet employs ἀργός in developing a richer narrative, including character portrayal. How are various appearances of ἀργός composed and interconnected? How do they metaphorically affect their contexts? What do they symbolise within the narrative? Through detailed analysis, I show that ἀργός, being appropriately selected to contribute to each context as a significant indicator, plays an important role in brightening the context, effectively and picturesquely.

Theokritos 13. idillje Nikiashoz címzett vigasztalás: maga a „Hylas-történet” paradeigma, mely a közösség (az Argó) célratörő, fegyelmezett rendjét és az érzéki, pusztító erőket állítja szembe egymással. A hősi magatartásra egyrészt a meghatározott cél felé tartó mozgás (Argó), másrészt a mozdulatlanság jellemző (Telamón; a hős Héraklés). A Hylast kereső Héraklés az Argótól elszakadva görbe vonalú pályán jut el Kolchisba, de közben nem hagyja el a halandók szféráját. Hylas a racionális cselekvés szférájából kilépve, a körtáncot lejtő - egy képzeletbeli középpont körül forgó - Nymphák szenvedélyének tárgyaként lép át az irracionális szférába, a föld alatti világba, és halála után az égi (isteni) szférába jut fel.
