Mareike Heinritz developes a new approach towards the interpretation of the use of Greek myths in funeral contexts of the Bosporan kingdom, on the example of the myth of the Niobids. Mareike Heinritz argues in her paper that the myth of the Niobids in the Bosporan context is used in a much more abbreviated form and within the rules of a local funerary tradition.
