This chapter focuses on the smallest category of curses for this period: curses directed against public performers. There are only four of these: three directed against various personnel involved with festival choruses, while the fourth targets an individual whom it identifies as an actor. It argues for the importance of setting these texts in their civic context, and for recognising the complex dynamics that may underpin these curses.

Keywords:   curses, public performers, festival choruses
