Abstract [en]

In the presentation of the workshop "Reading emotions in ancient visual culture" the following question is posed: "Why was the agonizing sculpture of Marsyas about to be flayed so popular in the early Roman empire?" This paper will suggest an answer to this question. I wish to emphasize that there was an alternative version of the myth of Marsyas, one where he manages to escape the cruel fate that Apollo had set out for him. Instead, Marsyas settled in Italy, where his image was later to be placed in Roman fora as a symbol of liberty. I will suggest that there was a Roman tradition of depicting Marsyas "unbound" - after having escaped from Apollo and arrived in Italy. Agonizing as the depictions of the hanging Marsyas are, in a Roman context they were perhaps not necessarily seen to represent the final hours of Marsyas' life.
