Authors

Abstract

This paper presents a translation – the fist into Portuguese – and analysis of the arguments of the two superstitious fragments of On the Feminine Harmony (Peri gunaikos harmonias), attributed to Perictione, so-called Pythagorean philosopher. It aims to contribute to the debate on the feminine in antiquity – theme of this special issue – by discussing the female authorship of a discourse on the virtue of women and arguing that this is plausibly the earliest text that assigns to women the task of generating affection (philia) in the family and its extensions in all circumstances.
