Extract

Christopher Carey, CQ 39 (1989), 287ff. sets out to explain the transition in Pindar, O. 8.52–5 from the story of the building of the walls of Troy to the praises of the trainer Melesias. ‘The myth of O. 8’, he writes, ‘tells of the role of Aiakos in the building of the walls of Troy. It closes with Apollo going off to his favourite haunts while Poseidon drives off to the Isthmus of Corinth, depositing Aiakos at Aigina on the way. The myth is followed by an opaque gnome.’
