Dolphins in Oppian’s Halieutica: Α Case of Their Behavioral Description(?)
Dolphins in Oppian’s epic poem are presented in several scenes depicting their lives as infants, mothers, mature cetaceans threatened by a variety of predators. In every case their emotions, consciousness and social culture are traced through a vocabulary borrowed from Homeric poems and tragic poetry. The aim of this article is to highlight and feature the behavior of these dolphins according to modern ethological and ecological observations.
