For Greek lexicographers, the verb 'maschalisthenai', which appears only in Aeschylus and Sophocles, refers to certain details of the murder of Agamemnon by his wife Clytemnestra.The ancient tradition on "maschalismos" has become in the modern age a bone of contention among scholars around the study of Greek religion, in particular concerning the relationship with death and the underworld. This contribution examines the different interpretations of "maschalismos" proposed by Erwin Rohde and Raffaele Pettazzoni and their different perspectives on the comparison.
