Conversations: Flashing Her Way to Freedom, Phryne & Hetarae w/ Dr. Melissa Funke

Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby!

PHRYNE! You’ve all seen the meme of the Hetarae who stripped in an Athenian courtroom to prove her innocence, right? Well that *may* have happened, but she was amazing regardless. Dr. Melissa Funke shares endless Phyrne and Hetarae stories of ancient Athens. For more of everything, check out Peopling the Past!

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it’s fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I’m not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
