Greek Myth XLVIII: Pseudo-Apollodorus’s Bibliotheca Book III, Chapter VII – Epigoni, or The Ring Cycle

That necklace gets around…

Discussion Prompts

  1. Alcmaeon punishes his mother before he returns later to murder her. What do you think that first punishment is?
  2. Retell this story from Arsinoe’s perspective.
  3. Retell this story as though you are Euripides.
  4. Retell this story as though you are Callirrhoe.
  5. Retell this story as though you are Wagner.
  6. Why do you think this story might still speak to us today? What modern events does it make you think of?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
