This study attempts a fully contextualized reading of the praise poetry written by Pindar for Hieron of Syracuse in the 470s B.C. It argues that the songs composed by Pindar for the Sicilian tyrant were part of an extensive cultural programme that included athletic competition, coinage, architecture, sanctuary dedication, city foundation, and much more
