The present paper studies the history of the ancient Greek term “thechne”. The author has laid particular stress on the time and the circumstances of giving the term the meaning of “public speech”. Inherited from Homer’s epos, the word “thechne” was found to be drawn into various levels of social practice in classical Athens where this term found its way to the sphere of public speech. In all probability by the 30s of the 5th century BC the meaning of “thechne” acquired its new shade of eloquent public speech. The new meaning of the term - “oral mastery/public speech” - for the first time has been established in a written from in Aristophanes’ comedy “The Frogs” brought on the stage in 405 BC.
