Abstract

An actual piece delivered at the 12th International Aegean Conference. Palaima discusses the Linear B and historical Greek terminology for 'meals' in order to arrive at a clearer view of what the data for banqueting were and what historical, cultural, and social factors might explain why the Linear B tablets have a meager vocabulary for feasting.
