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.'
