An attempt at reconstructing the plot of the Isthmiastai, one of the two known satyr-plays of Aeschylus by Bruno Snell
Professor of Classical Philology at Hamburg University
During the last twenty years more and more fragments of this play and of Aeschylus's Diclyoulcoi or Net-Fishers, which were found in Egypt, have been published by Edgar Lobel in The Oxyrhynchus Papyri.
' The twofold emancipation of tragedy,' said Professor Snell in his book The Discovery of the Mind, * both from the reality of. what is represented and from the ritual occasion, turns drama into " play," which is clearly shown even in the development of the satyr-play.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
