Gossip was a Powerful Tool for the Powerless in Ancient Greece

In Aristophanes’ comedy The Frogs, a nosy slave listens to his master’s conversations and spreads them around town, resulting in his master’s horrible misfortunes.

The Aristophanes character, however, was not put there just for laughs. Gossip was a real tool in the hands of slaves who wanted to punish their masters if they had treated them badly in ancient Greece.

Masters were justifiably worried that a slave might see or hear something in the household which could end up being used against them in a court of law or public opinion.

Ancient Greeks even had a goddess who represented gossip. Pheme (“fame” or “rumor” in English) was the last daughter of the goddess Gaia. She was depicted as a terrible winged creature who delighted in ruffling her feathers.

Beneath every feather there was a prying eye, a pricked ear and a wagging tongue. She flew from place to place at great speed, gabbling and screeching lies and half-truths to any person who would listen.

Slavery has been abolished, Pheme lives on.
