Abstract

In his Chronography, Malalas writes about emmaloi dancers who were granted by consul Longinus to the four factions of Constantinople, under Zeno’s reign. What could be the place of the emmaloi dancers in the amphitheater’s games in a Christianized Empire? It is relevant to verify what is said about them in this Christian Chronography, in order to inquire about the role taken by these popular dancers in a late Roman Empire which has to deal with the heritage of paganism. [p. 317]
