Summary

This paper argues that Archaic Greek epigram participates in the competitive poetic milieu of the period through its materiality and spatiality. This new, multi-media genre channels and adapts the poetics of the premier poetry of the period. Through its site-specificity, epigram creates its authority and its ability to foster kleos in each epigrammatic performance.
