Aristophanis Byzantii Fragmenta by William J. Slater

By William J. Slater

From the introduction:
"It is time," wrote Wilamowitz in 1907, "that Nauck's version of Aristophanes
of Byzantium used to be redone," and lots of instances during the
last few years i've got had reason to ask yourself on the knowledge and discretion
of these students who grew to become a deaf ear to his injunction. now not least, it is
a humiliating event to aim to stick to after the younger Nauck, whose
erudition and precision must have made it most unlikely for someone to
improve on his version of 1848. in lots of methods this variation isn't what I,
let by myself Wilamowitz, might have wanted. the distinction of Erbse's edition
of the Homeric scholia have made me lessen the Homeric part to little
more than an index locorum with precis, although i've got attempted to make
it invaluable through together with all attainable go references to the lexical works
of Aristophanes. during the remark is short, and cognoscenti will
readily enhance on it; however the literature on a gloss akin to proxenos would
by itself now fill a quantity, and a dialogue of the facts for deer
species in early Greece a ways exceeds the competence of this author. Nonetheless
I have commented on these glosses the place it appeared to me that
Aristophanes used to be facing a philological challenge recognized to his contemporaries;
and to this finish i've got taken a few care to collect relevant
testimonia, in view that i feel that with no such aid historic glosses can
mislead instead of inform.
The glosses and testimonia are given in Latin, grown rusty via years
of instructing classical civilization, however the observation is in English, for the
simple cause that i locate myself not able to speak about a few issues like
fallow-deer with adequate readability in Latin. back although i've got made an
honest attempt to acquire all pertinent books, the reader should still recognize that I
have no longer had entry without problems to a big library, in order that i discovered it impossible
to money all my citations of the D scholia to Homer, which whilst a new
edition is accessible needs to at some point be in comparison with Aristophanes.
