Abstract

This paper aims to interpret the function of laughter in Greek oratory. Investigation of relevant passages in the preserved speeches of the Attic orators and rhetorical meta-texts shows how laughter propels the establishment of each one of the three kinds of εντεχνoι πíστειζ ('artistic' proofs), namely argument, êthos and pathos.
