This chapter considers some other contexts in which Bacchylides' Dithyrambs were originally performed. It begins with Bacchylides 20 and Sparta, a case where performance by a kuklios khoros remains only a possibility. It then moves on to cases where kuklioi khoroi are fully documented, in preparation for a full treatment of Bacchylides 15 in the final chapter.

Keywords:   Bacchylides, Dithyrambs, kuklios khoros, Sparta
