Arthur Darby Nock, review of Ludwig Deubner, Attische Feste (Berlin: Keller, 1932), in Gnomon 10.6 (June, 1934) 289-295 (at 295):
The festival, with its mixture of piety, patriotism and merrymaking, holy day and holiday alike, is a central fact of ancient corporate religion, and very much of the life of antiquity is lost to us if we do not understand it aright.
