Abstract: »In the third section, devoted to Athenian vase painting, Arafat examines a motif which has already been introduced in section 2, that of males (often gods) pursuing females. His focus is on the vital political importance of many of these scenes. Zeus' pursuit of Aegina, for example, equates with the Athenian capture of the island of that name.« (Susan Deacy and Karen F. Pierce. »Preface.« Rape in Antiquity: Sexual Violence in the Greek and Roman Worlds. Edited by Susan Deacy et al. London 2002: ix)
