Abstract

They are two contemporaries of Aristotle: the tragic interpreter Theodore of Athens and the comedian Parmenon, around which anecdotes flourished. They were two very experienced artists in the art of naturalistic mimesis. A mimesis that went even beyond the competition with reality: in fact, their perfect imitations had effects on the audience that the real experiences did not obtain because of the sensitive and emotional barriers (as also the Aristotelian reflection states). Both actors gave significant contributions to the evolution of the art of dramatic acting, in a century in which the actor becomes even more important than the poet.
