Dative Women – The Female Enablers of Greek Heroes

One of the Greek grammatical terms is the Dative of Means. An example of the dative case would be: The king was killed with a sword, i.e. by means of a sword. The ‘sword’ would go into the Dative.

This seminar looks at the women who have been the agent of men becoming heroes. For instance: Jason becomes a hero by means of Medea getting him the fleece. Theseus becomes a hero by means of Ariadne helping him to beat the Minotaur.

But what happens to these women once they have served their purpose? Why is it that they so often disappear from the record after the event? This seminar tells the stories of some of the Dative Women without whom much of the Greek mythical/historical record would not exist.
