| amoebaean singing ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Amoebaean singing is a type of singing competition originating in Ancient Greece. In it, a first party sings according to a topic and verse structure of their choosing. A second singer then responds with the same verse structure and on a related topic. This repeats until one side concedes or a third party can determine the winner.
The form is believed to have been used by Greek shepherds to entertain themselves. Later, it would evolve into a judged competition, consisting of multiple rounds of singing between competitors. Competitors would be judged more favorably if they could continue a theme through multiple rounds.
The poet Theocritus relied heavily on Amoebaean singing, with it becoming his and his successors' 'hallmark', according to David M. Halperin.〔
