GLEI The fact that the old dissertation by Teufel (1939) on Branch und Ritus in Apollonius has not been superseded to date is symptomatic of this situation: it is the only comprehensive study of the ethnological material in the Argonautica (magic, expiation rites, cults, omens, "folklore") and needs urgent replacement. The commentaries, and especially Frankel's Noten (1968), contain rich relevant material and show Apollonius' tendency to rationalize the supernatural as much as possible: Medea's magical abilities are often presented in terms of advanced knowledge in pharmacology rather than sorcery (as the traditional view goes, which still survives: see Belloni ).
