I am pleased to introduce this new issue of Greek and Roman Musical Studies, a paradigmatic example of how scholarly research on music in Classical antiquity is currently lively and productive. The broad range of topics and historical periods covered by the following articles is outstanding.We start with three papers on musical myths in Greek and Roman antiquity investigated from different perspectives. The first of them is the lecture delivered by our Founding Editor, Andrew Barker, at the inaugural “Martin West Memorial Lecture” in Oxford, which gives a brilliant reading of the poetic occurence of the ‘Libyan aulos’ in tragic poetry, putting ancient Greek musical culture in a broader geographical context. In the second article, Pauline LeVen analyses the myth of Echo in Ovidian poetry emphasizing the allusive richness of the verbal material through which this myth is expressed and interpreting it as a reflection on the nature of the voice. This section is closed by the large and informative catalogue, illustrated by María Isabel Rodríguez and Claudina Romero Mayorga, of the representations of centaur-musicians in Classical iconography.The core of grms 6.1 is, then, devoted to a report on a remarkable event that occured in Cuma (Italy) in June
