peritus commented on the word aöidomachia
From the Greek aöidos (enchanter, minstrel, songstress, bard, etc.) and machia (battle): a fighting or contending with verses; a battle of poets, writers or singers. Perhaps exchanges of buskers and filkers playfully (or not so much so) riffing off of one another for sport might be a modern example of aöidomachia.
