Headword: Ὄρχησις παντόμιμος
Adler number: omicron,671
Translated headword: pantomime dancing
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Augustus Caesar invented this, with Pylades and Bacchylides its first practitioners.[1]
And Anagallis of Corcyra [Corfu], the female scholar, attributes the discovery of the ball[-dance] to Nausicaa daughter of Alcinous.[2]
Greek Original:
Ὄρχησις παντόμιμος: ταύτην ὁ Αὔγουστος Καῖσαρ ἐφεῦρε, Πυλάδου καὶ Βακχυλίδου πρώτων αὐτὴν μετελθόντων. καὶ Ἀναγαλλὶς ἡ Κερκυραία, γραμματική, τὴν τῆς σφαίρας εὕρεσιν Ναυσικάᾳ τῇ Ἀλκινόου θυγατρὶ ἀνατίθησιν.
Notes:
[1] A careless approximation of Zosimus, Historia nova 1.6.1, who merely places this discovery in the time of Octavian/Augustus; see in context at alpha 735. Also, the second of the pair of names should be Bathyllos.
[2] From Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.14D (1.25 Kaibel); cf. omicron 670. See already at alpha 1817, and again sigma 1720.
