The Perrhaebia of Myth

The myths, which were spread verbally, already at the time of writing were depicted in various ways in ancient literary and historical works in such a way that it is impossible to distinguish with absolute certainty all mythical elements from those of history.

According to Richard Buxton, “Myth is a traditional story of social power”. It is, in other words, a narrative of events organized in a sequence, transmitted from a narrator to a narrator and often from generation to generation, and finally the narratives occupy an important place in the societies that redefine them, embodying the values ​​of individuals, social groups and entire communities. The myths, therefore, are part of the historical course of every place and society.
