A music lesson
We’ll then move on to some more technical writings, including Aristoxenus’ 4th c. BCE Elements of Harmony and the 2nd c. CE On Music falsely ascribed to Plutarch. We’ll also read some of the discussion of music in the fourteenth book of Athenaeus’ Banquet of the Learned.
Finally, we’ll study a 2nd c. BCE inscription containing the Hymn to Apollo by (another) Athenaeus along with musical notation.
