A Study of the Greek Paean, with Appendixes containing the Hymns Found at Delphi and the Other Extant Fragments of Paeans
This study of the paean was undertaken with the purpose of
determining more accurately the meaning of the word as used by the
tragedians. It soon became evident that an examination of the whole
subject was necessary in order to understand the different uses of
the word, as well as the place of the hymn itself in Greek cultus.
In the first appendix, the author has reprinted the paeans and
fragments of paeans that are preserved to us; and in a second
appendix, he has reprinted with some comments the hymns found at
Delphi, to all of which the name paean may be applied.
