Pindar and Anacreon/Pindar/Pythian Odes/4. From Wikisource In the opening of this extremely long and highly poetical ode, Pindar, ↑ This mythological tale is related at length by Apollonius, in the fourth book of his Argonautics: (–).

Pythian 4 is Pindar's grandest ode. It was commissioned along with Pythian 5 to celebrate the chariot victory at Delphi of Arcesilas IV of Cyrene. The lengthy myth of Pythian 4 narrates the tale of Jason and the Argonauts, long established in the Greek mythic tradition.

Pindar's treatment of this tradition to create his myth is examined. This book has grown out of a course of lectures on the Pythian Odes delivered to undergraduates at Oxford over a period of several years.

Its method is to examine the structure and content of each ode as a finished work; and a continuous essay on each has seemed to me the most suitable form. Pythian 1 For Hieron of Aetna Chariot Race B.

Pindar's Pythian Eleven is a miniature masterpiece: a poem praising a young athlete which presents a vivid and important account of the Agamemnon legend. Yet it contains so many difficulties (of text, metre, dating and interpretation) that even Wilamowitz regarded it as one of Pindar's most obscure poems.
