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 plenty of occasions 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. no longer least, it is
a humiliating adventure to aim to keep on with after the younger Nauck, whose
erudition and precision must have made it very unlikely for someone to
improve on his version of 1848. in lots of methods this version isn't really what I,
let by myself Wilamowitz, could have needed. 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, even though i've got attempted to make
it worthwhile through together with all attainable move references to the lexical works
of Aristophanes. through the remark is short, and cognoscenti will
readily enhance on it; however the literature on a gloss corresponding to proxenos would
by itself now fill a quantity, and a dialogue of the proof for deer
species in early Greece some distance exceeds the competence of this author. Nonetheless
I have commented on these glosses the place it looked as if it would me that
Aristophanes used to be facing a philological challenge identified to his contemporaries;
and to this finish i've got taken a few care to collect relevant
testimonia, seeing that i think that with out such aid historical glosses can
mislead instead of inform.
The glosses and testimonia are given in Latin, grown rusty via years
of educating 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 even though i've got made an
honest attempt to acquire all pertinent books, the reader may still comprehend that I
have now not had entry without difficulty to a huge library, in order that i discovered it impossible
to fee all my citations of the D scholia to Homer, which whilst a new
edition is out there needs to at some point be in comparison with Aristophanes.

Against the commoner Hellenistic neuter form; the feminine στίβη is also Hellenistic. It is reasonably safe to assume that Ar. Byz. did quote some source for the criticized form, and that this resulted in M's misstatement. The word is Egyptian (Hemmerdinger, Glotta 46, 1968, 243) and the neuter form does not occur in any classical author so that Nauck's criticisms of Ar. Byz. are unjustified. While άμαρτάνειν κτλ. does have the form of an Atticist prescription, unique in the surviving fragments, it ought to be seen primarily as an objective criticism of a previous authority as in gl.

All ancient testimony agrees with Aristophanes, that φερνή was the equivalent of προίξ "dowry". But it is probable that others had insisted on a difference, with some justification, see H. J.
