Abstract

[automatically translated] The column "B" of the Lex Sacra di Selinunte prescribes a cathartic process probably related to cases of bloodshed, especially within the family. It shows us how to combine several key elements of the procedure is the thread of an exchange and mutual recognition between different levels of sociality, whose only inviolable rule that the application of the cultic practice does not conflict with the general interest of polis. Two key elements emerge: a) first, the chronological consistency of evidence reinforces the relevance of these correlations; b) above is clear, at least in my opinion, the relationship with the sphere dell'ancestralità and memory, which refers, with a backward movement almost named in the name, to the stage of foundation and the intervention of the ancestors, always present in the field of action of a ritualized memory. This occurs both in the generation time (through Τριτοπάτορες and other ancestors), because along the horizontal axis, that of genetic joints, namely the social network that supplies the community holding it together and compensating to some extent the inevitable friction. Both of the two axes of identity - from the past to the future founding purified and dall'οἶκος to πόλις - are necessary for κοινωνία and the integrity of the community. This epigraph enlightens us especially on the ways in which a society of the past dealt with the relationship between cohabitation and violence. what genetic joints, namely the social network that supplies the community holding it together and compensating to some extent the inevitable friction.
