The Hittite "Song of Emergence" and the Theogony

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The unusual verb "to emerge" to mean "give birth" in the Theogony finds a striking parallel in the Hittite "Song of Emergence" and, if not coincidental, may suggest a more direct contact between Greek and Hittite material than originally supposed and allows us to explore the possible locale of such contact.
