Abstract

The paper proposes an alternative interpretation of Theogn. 341-350. The image of the dog crossing the river and shaking off ‘everything’ assumes that the animal has reached the shore and implies salvation. Two reconstructive hypotheses are therefore given depending on whether one assumes that the ‘dog-poet’ remained in his homeland or was forced into exile.
