The question of writing public space is raised: how are the historical performances that potentially reconfigure social relations written into law? How is the graphic extracted from choreography? It is suggested that the answer lies in recognizing the materiality of writing, the fact that it involves making an impression. Tracks, writing or hunting, can be read: they are avenues of desire. A non-imperialistic writing, which Nicole Loraux finds in the female management of the Metroon, allows a different kind of desire to surface in public space, one that recuperates Pallas Athene.
