Alcman Ἀλκμᾶνος; 7th century BC) was an Ancient Greek choral lyric poet from Sparta. He is the earliest representative of the Alexandrinian canon of the nine lyric poets. From the outset of the second part of the Partheneion (39–43), it is clear that the chorus is singing while the two ritual agents—Hagesichora, the chorus leader, and Agido, probably her assistant—are located at some distance and absorbed in their own ritual and performative action (Calame –13). The first two statements of the chorus, [End Page ], are emblematic. The fragment, which is now kept at the Louvre in Paris, France, contains approximately verses of a so-called partheneion, i.e. a song performed by a chorus of young unmarried women. In the s, many more fragments were discovered and published in the collection of the Egyptian papyri from a dig of an ancient garbage dump at Oxyrhynchus. Best Poems/Poesie by Alcman. Jacopo Palma il Vecchio, Nymphs bathing (Diana and Callisto), c. The gods' vengeance does exist. Blessed is anyonewho blinds off the day's weft.
