Greek Lyric, Tragedy, and Textual Criticism

W. S. Barrett

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the author's dissatisfaction with a number of commonly accepted supplements in Bacchylides' ode. It is based on two things: first, an attempt (primarily with the aid of Kenyon's facsimile) to relate every supplement exactly to the available space; second, an examination of the papyrus itself in London. This second exercise has allowed the correction in seven places of statements made about the smaller vestiges, and nine previously unobserved vestiges have been found. The whole text of the ode (arranged, for convenience of metrical comparison, with a complete triad on each page) is presented, followed by a continuous commentary.
