For the communis opinio, during classical period, strophes and antistrophes were sung with a common melody which no followed the accents, but Rujigh’s works opens again the discussion. We show some interactions of the accents between strophe and antistrophe. We explain these interactions by practice which exits also in other culture with « musical accent » : the fee melody follows well the accentuation. Until to Euripides, the melodies of the strophe and antistrophe would be different, except in some important rhythmical places. [p. 318]
