A certain number of fragments attributed to Aristoxenus of Tarentum (the Peripatetic philosopher famous as mousical theorist) shows his interest in the ethical-aesthetic value of music, which was common in antiquity. From the analyses of such a material, it is possible to obtain some information on the Aristoxenian thought in this field. [Eleonora Rocconi]
