Abstract

Ion of Chios, one of the most representative and versatile exponents of elegiac sympotic poetry in the classical age, in fr. 2 Gent.-Pr. (= 90 Leurini), resumes poetic motives and terms present in fr. 1 Gent.-Pr. (= 89 Leurini). In accordance with the love for puns and amphibology which is a common trait of both dithyrambographers and elegiac poets in the classical period, he uses the term βασιλεύς in two different senses: the first, which could be grasped by a broader audience, alludes immediately to Dionysus and wine, which are also celebrated in Elegy 1; the second, which was meant for a restricted audience, alludes to a very well known person of Peloponnesian origin, perhaps king Archidamus II, who had been praised during a symposium held in a Cimonian milieu.
