Le langage des statues : remploi et resémantisation des statues grecques sous le Haut-Empire (Dion de Pruse, Or. XII et XXXI)

Abstract : This paper focuses on the one hand on problems about re-use and new meaning of Greek statues in the context of early Empire and on the other hand on rivalry between sculpture and eloquence in communication. These two points are studied in the Rhodian and Olympic discourses of the sophist Dio of Prusa. These discourses link together oral, writing and sculpture; they stress the functions of honorific statues and Phidias’ Zeus, and explain how these functions are subverted for the city and the Greek world when statues are used to honor the Romans.
