Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

[automatically translated] Heracles is the hero par excellence of Greek colonization. The study of the traditions related to its business in the western Mediterranean allows you to shed light on the manipulations that in later centuries have been developed to explain and legitimize the taking of possession by the Greek inhabited by other peoples lands. A considerable part of this tradition merged with Diodorus. It examines the tasks assigned to the female presence, enhancing the relationship between the feminine dimension of otherness and the otherness barbaric.
