Elementi mitici orientali nel ‘Prometheus vinctus’ di Eschilo

Published December 13, 2016


In Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound we may perceive an influence of two Oriental myths: the myth of the swallowing of a god, in relationship with the morning star and the eastern pillar of the sky, and the myth of two Titans chained up at the pillars of the vault of heaven. Io’s wanderings in the world of the dead are also to be connected with Mesopotamian and Phoenician traditions.
