|Title:||The Myth of Philoktetes|
|Authors:||Craik, Elizabeth M.|
|Abstract:||It is generally recognized that rationalizations of historical tradition and cult practice are important elements in Greek myth; and it is generally accepted that myths, superficially different, may nevertheless have common underlying import. In this paper, the myth of Philoktetes is explored through apparent ‘doublets' in history and cult. Philoktetes is seen to be aligned with Jason, Theseus and other heroes, as well as with Hippolytos; Chryse is seen to be aligned with Medea, Ariadne and other nymphs, also with Phaidra and Aphrodite. It is argued that the theme of aberrant or ambivalent sexuality is an element in Sophokles' presentation of Philoktetes.|
