The Epitome of Euripides' Auge *

(p.454) 22 The Epitome of Euripides' Auge*
Greek Lyric, Tragedy, and Textual Criticism

W. S. Barrett

Oxford University Press

This fragment (P. Colon. 1, inv. 264), with the beginning of the epitome of Auge, was first published by L. Koenen in ZPE 4 (1969), 7-18 with Tafel iii(a) and iv, under the title ‘Eine Hypothesis zur Auge des Euripides und tegeatische Plynterien’. This chapter presents a reconstruction of the text of the epitome, and discusses the implications of Euripides' version of the legend for ritual practices at Tegea. It begins by transcribing the papyrus text. The transcript is placed side-by-side with Koenen's reconstruction, so that it may be seen (a) what the author is differing from, (b) what borrowings he is making.
