1 The law that Homer should be recited at the festival of the Great Panathenaea, held in the third year of each Olympiad, may fairly safely be assigned to the time of the Pisistratids （c. 560 to 510 B.C.）. It is not mentioned in connection with Pisistratus himself, though he is credited by a number of ancient authorities with the establishment of a definite text of Homer （cf. Cicero,de Orat. 3.34）, but according to Plat. Hipparch. 228b, his son Hipparchus did provide for recitations at the festival.
