Kadmos and Europa, and the Phoenicians

  • Robert S. P Beekes
From the journal Kadmos


1. The discussion in Der Neue Pauly (by K. Meister) of the Phoenicia-problem of the Kadmos-story is quite inadequate. Especially a mere reference to Edwards' monography on Kadmos the Phoenician is insufficient to settle the matter. (Vian interprets the story of Kadmos as containing traces of an Indo-European tripartite society. As I do not believe in Dumézil's theories on this point, I shall not discuss them.)
