Martin Steinrück: Greek accents and the melody (a work-shop). This workshop aims at familiarizing you with some features of ancient Greek accent and at giving you an idea of its importance for what we might call melody. The accents of at least the 8th-2nd century BC, but in most contexts until the 4th century AD, were musical as the handbook says. By two short exercices, we shall see how Pindar used melody in a very different way as we do.
