abstract

This short article analyses an apparent hapax (“támbico pilar”) in an auto sacramental by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, La cena del rey Baltasar (c. 1630-1635). After presenting the passage and the critics’ opinion on the subject, this essay contextualises the phrase and formulates a hypothesis to clarify the passage by using, among other arguments, other seventeenth-century printed texts.
