Abstract

The trojan epic cycle as it is part transmitted, in part known from fragments and ancient testimonia is the result of formation of a rhapsodic canon: the one established by Homeridai of Chios. However in antiquity circulated also other shapes of the cycle, alternative to that canonized, as for example the cycle of the Creophyleiof Samos. These alternative shapes become part of the domain of submerged greek poetry and then were lost.
