MARTINS DE JESUS, Carlos A.. The Construction of the Image of Peace in Ancient Greece: a few literary and Iconographic Evidences. Synthesis (La Plata) [online]. 2010, vol.17, pp. 25-46. ISSN 0328-1205.

The aim of this paper is to identify and analyse some of the main poetic and artistic manifestations of the pair peace / wealth, adopting a diachronic and comparative perspective and trying to isolate the most frequent images, metaphors and epithets in relation to that subject. The study of the selected passages intends to clarify how both poets and plastic artists knew and made use of the same very ancient heritage.

Keywords : Eirene; Peace; Ploutos; Wealth; Greek Lyrics; Iconography.
