The chapter shows how wide and variegated was the notion of mousikē in Greek and Roman world, stressing its character as an art of performance strictly linked to different contexts. It is divided into three sections: 1) The culture of mousikē in Archaic and Classical Greece 2) Music performances in late Greek antiquity 3) The Roman age. [Eleonora Rocconi]
