This introductory chapter outlines the rationale and scope of the book, whose aim is to open out appreciation of the significance of Aeginetan poetry, culture, and society as widely as possible, both within the immediate contexts and concerns of Aeginetan aristocrats, and through the history of fifth-century Greece. Main subjects for discussion are poetic articulations of local myth, economics, politics and administration, ritual and cult, art, and historiography. A detailed discussion of methodology and approaches is presented together with an overview of subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   Aegina, poetry and choral song, Pindar and Bacchylides, Athens, Aiakidai, myth, history and historiography, art, identity
