Sur un topos romanesque oublié : les scènes de banquets

Abstract : The symposium-topos is among the necessary items of the greek romances. In close connection with the development of the love story it often has a metaliterary meaning and it frequently bears the print of second sophistic. The increasing number of symposium scenes in byzantine romances of the twelfth century confirms the topical character of this motive : we can nevertheless note some new trends : taste for realia, comical dimension, both to be imputed to cynical deipnon influence, and also greater importance given to moral reflection.
