AIA Society: Puget Sound

In ancient Greece, as today, insults ranged from playful mockery to serious affronts. This talk explores the various social and cultural roles played by insults in classical Athens, including obscene banter at festivals, satire on the comic stage, invective in the courtroom, forbidden slanderous speech, and violent attacks on other people’s honor.
