abstract

The theme of the agonistic activity of actors and musicians in the Greco-Roman era is very broad and, consequently, offers multiple points of interest and research. Modern literature on the subject is varied, although it is not easy to find a text that, from a purely epigraphic point of view, deals with the subject in a complete way. The search was accompanied by a series of tables and lists that allow to summarise a whole series of results. The first table is organised based on the names of participants. This is followed by the index of specialities and festivals, with the specification of which speciality races were held in each location. A second table is organised to list the origins of the various artists but also the corresponding competition. Finally, it was deemed necessary to draw up a last list, in which all the artists were entered and for which, instead of specifying the single tender in which they were winners, the reference registration shows the broader term, starting from the more common one, known as periodonikes.
