Abstract

The word άντίθεος in the Aithiopika of Heliodorus (4.7.13) may, contrary to a recent discussion, carry the meaning 'opposing god' and need not refer solely to a human agent (in this case Theagenes). To derive the meaning exclusively from the Homeric sense 'godlike being' is to deprive the passage of its subtle irony.
