野間仁根 (野間仁根●薔薇 - ヤフオク!から)

Ὀγδόη Μεσοῦντος/ Ὀγδόη ἐπὶ δέκα / Όκτωκαιδεκάτη, XVIII day From today’s sunset: eighteenth day of Maimakterion. The eighteenth day is always dedicated to purifications and apotropaic rites. “The traditional laws of the Athenians have attributed the eighteenth as well as the nineteenth to the lustral and apotropaic rituals, as told by Philochorus and <***>, both interpreters of the uses of their Ancestors. So, perhaps for this reason, Hesiod says that this day is sacred, and especially after noon, because this part of the day is suitable for the purifications…” Scholia Erga, 810 ( Hydrophoria: Under a tetrastyle Doric portico are five fountains; the columns have spreading echini, the guttae and metopes are painted white; the central and the two outer fountains are in the form of lions’ heads; the other two, of equestrian figures seen from the front; out of each of them water is pouring into a hydria placed on a block. Four maidens stand one by each column; the one on the left stands to left holding up a wreath, or perhaps a strap for holding the hydria; behind her is inscribed Ίοπή; the next stands to right looking back, left hand raised to the centre lion’s head; behind her Ροδοπίς; the third, also to right, is about to place a wreath (?) on one of the equestrian figures; in front of her is Kλέω; the fourth, standing to right by the furthest lion’s head raises left hand towards it. All have hair looped up and long embroidered chitons with diploidia. In the field are branches. From Athens, 520BC-500BC (circa), found in Vulci, now in the British Museum…)
