    This book consists of individual studies of Pindar's eleven odes for Aiginetan victors, preceded by a brief survey of the history of the island and the nature of its aristocracy. Anne Pippin Burnett's discussion is particularly attentive to questions of mythic self-presentation, as exemplified in the pedimental sculptures of the Aphaia Temple and the parallel `narrative' sections of the odes. The overall concern is with Pindaric techniques for unifying an audienceand leading it into a shared experience of inspired success, but there is also a concern with the realities of athletic contest and its celebration.
