Reconstructing Damon

Robert W. Wallace

Oxford University Press

After analysing the sources for Damon’s education in the early fifth century by a cluster of important music sophoi or sophistai including Lasos of Hermione, whose histories are reconstructed, this chapter considers Damon as teacher of Athens’ elite, the emergence of intellectuals replacing poets as teachers, the replacing of traditional by advanced theoretical education taught by men often known as sophists, and the early emergence of what is called New Music.

Keywords:   Lasos of Hermione, ancient Greek education, New Music, sophist, Perikles, Perikles’ teachers, Nikias
