Abstract In the classical sources feminine figures have an important role in characterizing the oriental world, that is described with a feminine shade sometimes through an inversion of roles between women and men. In the Greek world, heroes realize their function of foundation of the reality also in defining the specific aspects of the different oriental contexts. Heroines are very important for the representation of these realities, thanks to their peculiar behavior and personality.
