La musica degli Auli a Sparta: una questione testuale
To demonstrate that courage is tempered by reason and has no need of anger, that denounces weakness of mind, Plutarch (coh. ira 458E) cites the custom of the Spartans to arouse thymos before the fight with the sound of flutes and at the same time to sacrifice to the Muses, so that in the soul of the fighters remains the reason to regulate the judgments. If this is the sense of the passage, confirmed by the comparison with the loci similes, it is necessary to emend the text transmitted by the Mss. (ααιρυσι τον υμον ... > επαιρουσι τον υμον ...).
