The article takes into account all available literary and iconographical sources on ‘aulodia’, rather scarce compared to those for other genres of Greek solo musical competitions. Images of aulodes occur in vase-painting of VI–V BC. In IV–I BC the word ‘aulodos’ is represented only by epigraphical documents, and ‘aulodia’ is mentioned only by Plat. Leg. 700d. Since the Christian era the evidence is only literary: ‘aulodia’ disappears from the documents, that is, from the program of musical contests.
