Not to be confused with prosody
Prosodion (Greek: Προσόδιον) in ancient Greece was a processional song to the altar of a deity, mainly Apollo or Artemis, sung ritually before the Paean hymn. Prosodia had been composed by Eumelus of Corinth and Limenius, as well the various winners in art competitions (Mouseia). The etymology of the word is related to ὁδός hodos road and not with ᾠδή ôidê song.
- literally, "activity having to do with the Muses
