We were pleased to welcome back Maša Ćulumović, Fellow at the Center for Hellenic Studies, as a guest for a discussion on Pindar’s Poetics of Homecoming. The event took place on Thursday, November 15, at 11:00 a.m. EST, and was recorded.
The main focus passages for this discussion are:
- the whole of Olympian 5
- Olympian 1.1–24
- Olympian 9.1–20

although it might be helpful to read them all in full.
