NUMÉRO DIKTYON: 35273

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: Some pages of this palimpsest contained as the original text select plays of Euripides. The surviving pages contain Hec. 869-920, 1125-1173, Ph. 730-750, 753-777, 811-899, 952-974, 977-992,1600-1700 [only 811-899 and 1600-1700 were known to Daitz; the other passages were recently identified by Albrecht: see below], Or. 105-213, 313-412, 565-588, 592-614, 718-766, 897-946, 1152-1200, 1356-1556, Andr. 80-169, 777-830, 887-986, 1042-1091, Hipp. 320-368, 469-518, 1136-1186, 1290-1336, Med. 51-255, 1278-1376.

HANDS:

I follow Daitz in his identification of hands for the scholia. Most of the annotation is by the same two scribes who wrote the poetic text. These two hands are dated by Daitz to around 1000. The third hand wrote some pages which are apparently replacement pages and added some scholia on other pages. In his second publication, correcting the date offered in the first, Daitz dates the third hand to 1050-1150; Nigel Wilson in GRBS 1973, 224-225 suggested this hand may be of the 11th century and not so distant in date from the others. A few additions to the annotation were made by five additional hands of later date. I use the siglum H to indicate the first hand; other hands are indicated by a superscript number.

IMAGES USED: Plates in the facsimile (Daitz 1970), and scans from those plates. Impressive new images obtained through multispectral imaging have been created by the Palamedes project, and will eventually be accessible to the public (I have seen only the one sample image made available with the press release). That project will publish a new facsimile and report (in 2018?), and it is reported by Felix Albrecht that a considerable number of new scholia can be read on the new images.

SIGLUM: M

CITY: Venice

COLLECTION: Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana

SHELFMARK: greco Z. 471 (=765)

DATE: 11th cent.

NUMÉRO DIKTYON: 69942

CATALOGUE (later than Turyn 1957): E. Mioni, Bibliothecae divi Marci Venetiarum codices Graeci manuscripti. 1:2. Thesaurus antiquus, codices 300-625 (Rome 1985) 260-262.

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: 20r-42v: Hec.; 42v-43v: arg. Or.; 44r-75r: Or.; 75v-76v: arg. Ph.; 76v-109r: Ph.; 109r-109v: arg. Andr.; 109v-132v: Andr.; 133r-133v: arg. Hipp.; 133v-154v: Hipp. 1-1254

TYPE AND FORMAT: Large set of old scholia by first hand, but those on Hipp. are often truncated. The number of lines of poetic text on each page is regular: 29 lines in the first quire or Hec. (20r-27v), but 28 lines from 28r to the end, except 27 on 99r-v. On pages with dense annotation, the scholia are positioned in top, outer, and lower margin, with reference symbols. When the annotation is less dense, the top and bottom and the beginning and ending of the outer margin may be used, normally with reference symbols. On the least dense pages scholia may be only in the side block. If scholia are sparsely placed in the side block, they are usually positioned at the level of the lemma in the text and in that case usually have neither reference symbol nor lemma.

HANDS:

All the scholia and almost all the supralinear and intermarginal annotations are from the original writing of the manuscript and are referred to as M or Ms; the light brown ink of M has a distinctly yellowish tinge and in some of the interlinear and intermarginal notes is written with an exceptionally fine stroke. Later annotations are relatively few and are written in a more grayish ink, usually with a broader or fuzzier stroke, and often extremely faint. On the new digital images it seems possible to distinguish two later hands. The more neatly written glosses (sometimes fainter) are designated as M2, whereas M3 is used to refer to those that are written larger and more informally (and usually darker) and may be Palaeologan. But in some cases it is unclear whether notes that appear somewhat different may not represent the same scribe in modes of writing that vary in formality, or whether more than one scribe is responsible for the notes recorded as M2.

IMAGES USED: Initially, digitized images from a recent microfilm. From August 2014 new color digital images. Autopsy inspection of problematic passages (using UV lamp) March 2015, which allowed more accurate and more complete reading at some places than Schwartz was able to perform. Facsimile: Euripidis quae in codice Veneto marciano 471 inveniuntur, phototypice expressa Florentiae, Arte fratrum Alinari, typis opificii "La stampa" cura et impensis J.A. Spranger, 1935 (to which I do not have access except when visiting libraries that own it). The manuscript has been restored since the 1935 facsimile, and some letters then concealed by folds in the parchment are visible now.

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 84-85; Matthiessen 48; Mastronarde–Bremer 2; Diggle 5; Cavarzeran 30-31; Mastronarde 2017: Chapter 4.

DISCUSSION:

Like other old parchment manuscripts, M has suffered fading and damage in the margins of some pages, and the writing is in places unrecoverable.

The scholia on the triad plays and Andromache are extensive, and the same applies to lines 1-350 of Hippolytus. For Hipp. 350-800, however, the scholia become sparser (a few folios have only a couple of interlinear glosses) and are in an abridged form relative to those of similar content in BVN (the abridgement is somewhat like that of the scholia on Orestes in O compared to the fuller versions in MBV). After Hipp. 850 there are only four short glosses, and most folios have no annotation at all.

In Mastronarde 2017, Chapter 4, I have discussed the features of the script and the dating of M as well as some other palaeographic and codicological details.

NUMÉRO DIKTYON: 52348

CATALOGUE (later than Turyn 1957): See the detailed description dated 2012 provided online at the gallica.bnf.fr site. (URL below)

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: (original parts) 17r-28r: Hec. 523-1295; 28r-v: arg. Or.; 28v-56r: Or.; 56r-v: arg. Phoen.; 56v-82r: Phoen.; 82r-v: arg. Hipp.; 82v-108r: Hipp.; 108r-v: arg. Med.; 108v-129v: Medea; 129v: arg. Alc.; 129v-145v: Alc.; 145v: arg. Androm.; 146r-159v: Androm. 1-956, 1212-1235, 1250-1271

TYPE AND FORMAT: A large set of old scholia, but some of those on Andr. are shortered versions. Glosses above the line (many not reported by Schwartz) or beside the line. Mainly in the triad, later hands add younger glosses, including some Moschopulean ones. The number of lines of poetic text per page is often 32 or 34, but pages can be found with as few as 23 or as many as 37. Like M, B uses top, side, and bottom block on pages with dense annotation, and sometimes the intermarginal space and the inner margin of the page. Reference symbols and lemmata are normal on such pages. When annotation is less dense, the scholia may be in an upper bracket (top block and a variable number of lines in the side), with the bottom block blank; or less often a bracket at the bottom, with a few lines in the end of the side block continuing into a few in the bottom block. When the annotation is sparse, scholia may be confined to the side block and spaced at intervals, usually without reference symbols or lemmata.

HANDS:

The following remarks on the hands of the scholia in B are based on study of the online color images for Orestes 1-500. It should be emphasized that attributions among the later hands is sometimes quite uncertain, and that the results do not necessarily apply to other sections of the manuscript. The situation is simpler in Phoen., and even more so in the non-triad plays.

The scholia blocks are in the main hand (B, or occasionally B1 for extra clarity), a regular minuscule with some majuscule letters, constrained to normal size with few exceptions (I noted some extra wide upsilons in ligature with pi); breathings rectilinear. Few if any supralinear notes can be assigned with certainty to this hand. After some of the original writing became faint, it was written over. I report rewritten passages as B unless there is a reason to believe that the later hand altered the original reading. (It is probably true that the original codex "est entièrement copié par un seul et même copiste," as the online description states. But in the scholia this scribe's style can vary in minor details such as proportion of majuscule letters, space between letters, treatment of epsilon in ligatures and suspension, and use or avoidance of certain abbreviations.)

B2 is a light brown ink, which sometimes can be very faint; this hand tends to be smaller and more regular than B3 hands, uses more old minuscule abbreviations and letter forms. For examples, see the variant ἐκδικῶν over the first line of the hypothesis (Arg. 1), and the fainter of the two additions made to Arg. 2c. This hand is probably pre-Palaeologan.

B3 hands show more irregularity, cursiveness, and similarities to Palaeologan hands or even later scripts.

I use B3a for the majority of these later glosses; the ink varies from dark brown, or almost black when the pen is freshly dipped, to medium brown; the hand is fairly cursive and sometimes mannered. This hand appears at many places to be rewriting a very faint underlying annotation: perhaps this same hand rewrote some faded text and scholia, but in those cases the scribe usually followed more carefully the size of original letters; in interlinear instances, this scribe seems to freely use more space than the obscured gloss. Thus it is possible that some B3a glosses are actually older, but we can no longer detect the earlier writing or confirm that traces represent the same annotation.

B3b is in a lighter ink, with separated letters and fairly neat, as in the gloss λάβοι on line 3.

B3c is very light, irregular, and sloppy; examples at lines 4 and line 5.

B3d is a very black ink, usually written with sharper strokes, but like B3a sometimes seems to be rewriting previous annotations; when B3a is at its darkest, it is hard to distinguish from B3d. Examples of B3d are the correction of middle letters of αἴγισθον in the first sentence of Arg. 1 or the note with the names of Erinyes at 37.

B4 has largish letters, light ink, late mannered letter forms, adds marginal labels to some scholia to highlight content and also adds marginal notations drawn from lexica or the Suda.

IMAGES USED: Collated from online images and sometimes from scanned images made by me from photographs from the collection of Alexander Turyn (these sometimes show more clearly words in the curve of the binding that are obscure on the online images). Facsimile: Euripidis quae in Cod. Par. Gr. 2713 servantur, phototypice expressa cura et impensis J.A. Spranger.

FURTHER BIBLIOGRAPHY: See also the detailed description dated 2012 provided online at the gallica.bnf.fr site. Two fifteenth-century scribes have been identified on the replacement pages 1r-8v (Georgios Baiophoros, RGK II 74) and 9r-16v (Theodoros Gazes, RGK II 165).

DISCUSSION:

Outside of Orestes 1-500, collation been completed (as of late 2017) for the first hand only, since it is much easier to collate the later entries after glosses and other notes have been recorded from the recentiores and the Moschopulean witnesses.

NUMÉRO DIKTYON: 16241

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: 1r-19v: Hec.; 19v-20v: arg. Or.; 20v-45v Or.; 45v-46r: arg. Med.; 46r-64v: Med.; 64v: arg. Ph.; 64v-87r: Ph.: 87r: arg. Alc.; 87v-99v: Alc.; 99v: arg. Andr.; 99v-115v: Andr.; 116r: arg Hipp.; 116r-133v: Hipp.; 134r-141v: Rhes. dram. pers., 1-714

TYPE AND FORMAT: A very limited selection based on the old scholia, often abbreviated in an idiosyncratic way, and some glosses are present for the first three plays (Hec., Or., Med.) of the Euripidean part of the codex, and even in these plays are absent for long stretches of the text. Marking of long vowels with a macron, however, is present in all the plays. After having no scholia on the last four Euripidean plays, sporadic scholia return again in the Sophoclean portion of the codex.

HANDS:

While the poetic text is in the hand of Ioannikios (see discussion below), the scholia are in the hand of an anonymous collaborator of his, whom Wilson recognized and whom Degni designates as B, an individual who also wrote the scholia in other manuscripts of Ioannikios.

IMAGES USED: Collated from microfilm, from scanned images made by me from photographs from the collection of Alexander Turyn, and from online images. Some autopsy checking May 2013.

Baldi, “Ioannikios e il Corpus Aristotelicum,” Revue d'histoire des textes, n.s. 6 (2011) 15-26; Nesseris, forthcoming.

DISCUSSION:

Because of the quality of the paper, there has been much bleedthrough as well as absorption of ink, creating dark patches around text, reducing contrast in images. Repair tissue also apparently makes the script less sharp. In addition, the poetic text is crowded by word-for-word Latin glossing of Hec. 1-466 (fols. 1r to 7r) added by Leonzio Pilato in 1360-1362; when this glossing in dense, the tiny Greek glosses are hard to spot. Marginal Greek is easier to see, but still very small and full of abbreviations, and on both rectos and versos marginal writing may be cut off by trimming of the paper. The same occurs at the top of the page sometimes, when this space is used. The online images are better than the Turyn photographs, especially after the improvement of the online viewer in 2017 allowing better magnification; but they do not show letters close to the binding on verso pages.

The BML information still shows the date of this manuscript as 1301-1400, but on the dating of Ioannikios' activity to the 12th century, see N. G. Wilson in CR 18 (1978), 336, and in Scrittura e Civiltà 7 (1983), 161-176 (who notes on 163 that "The book is interesting in one other respect: it belonged to Leonzio Pilato, who wrote between the lines his version of Euripides' Hecuba 1-466."). See also Degni and Baldi as cited above. A fuller discussion of Ioannikios is forthcoming in the work of Ilias Nesseris on higher education in Constantinople in the 12th century, and with further knowledge of Ioannikios' career, the date of O may need to be adjusted downward by a few decades.

Gallo, ed., Miscellanea Graecolatina I (Milan 2013) 49-64.

DISCUSSION:

These sheets of paper (of Arabic type, according to Palla) were separated by Angelo Mai from the famous late-antique (parchment) illustrations of the Iliad in Ambros. F 205 inf. The illustrations had been attached to them in a repair operation in the 12th century, according to the dating of the paper and the script (from the region of Calabria and Sicily) advocated by Palla (330-337). Most of the annotation written on the paper backing consists of Homeric commentary (D-scholia and the like), and extracts from Eur. Andr. and Rhes. were also written to serve as comments on the Homeric story being illustrated. The lines from Andr. accompany illustrations from Book 6, and Palla has made it likely that those from Rhesus do as well (the point being their information about Hector, not about Rhesus). The article of Palla contains a number of inaccuracies, as revealed by the inspection undertaken at my request by Luigi Battezzato (December 2009), to whom I owe reports of what is readable. There are apparently no annotations on Rhes., but several damaged ones survive for Andr., both written with the text excerpt and as part of the notes added in black or red on the images themselves. See now Castelli (cited above).

TYPE AND FORMAT: Old scholia with some additions apparently from the 11th-12th centuries; along with glosses comparable to those in MB, many additional glosses and short paraphrases interlinearly. The number of lines of poetic text per page varies greatly, usually from 18-21 lines, but occasionally as few as 10 or as many as 27. The fullest pages have scholia on three sides, with the top and bottom blocks of variable length; pages with fewer scholia usually have no bottom block, and may have scholia in the side block only. Reference symbols are used regularly and lemmata not quite as regularly.

HANDS:

The text and marginal scholia and some interlinear glosses were written by a pair of scribes working closely together (probably 1250-1280). Later, other hands added corrections of the text and additional annotations between the lines and in the margins (and rarely made corrections or changes to the marginal scholia written by the original pair). I have discussed the sharing of the work by the partner scribes in Mastronarde 2017, Chapter 5. Here I confine myself to briefer comments. I use V for one of the partners and V1 for the other, modernizing Schwartz's use of A and A1. Note that Dindorf sometimes described as "manus recentissima in V" notes actually written by V1 and thus part of the original work on the codex. The hand referred to as V2 in Diggle's OCT and in my collations made corrections in the text and more rarely in the block of scholia, but added few annotations. The hand referred to as V3 in Diggle's OCT and in my collations (probably active active around 1300 or the decade or so after 1300) is a more cursive and informal hand. (Cavarzeran uses for this cursive hand V with the subscript 2.) The infrequent notes that are by even later hands are referred to with the siglum Vrec. In addition, Schwartz reported the scholia on Hec. 1-31 from the replacement page 2r-2v without remarking that these pages are not by the original hands; I use the siglum Vv for these scholia, which were apparently copied from the damaged original before it was discarded (note that in this copying any visual distinction between annotations by the various hands on Hec. 1-31 has been lost). I use the same siglum for the few scholia on fol. 17r, which have every appearance of being copied from the original (note the slightly longer version of the sch. 741 than in B, and the confusion in sch. 736, which is paralleled elsewhere in V's scholia on Hecuba).

IMAGES USED: Prints for Orestes (scanned to allow magnification); for all plays images digitized from microfilm from the library, of mediocre quality for reading anything obscure; some autopsy checking May 2012. New high-resolution grayscale images of the pages of Hecuba were obtained in 2015, making it possible to decipher many scholia that were unreadable on other images. Finally, the whole has been collated from the new online images, with further autopsy checking in 2016 and 2017.

ONLINE IMAGES: Through the kindness of the Vatican Library and the Polonsky Foundation Digitization Project, excellent images of V have now been made available at: http://digi.vatlib.it/view/MSS_Vat.gr.909/

DISCUSSION:

The pages have suffered damage to varying extents; some pages have been trimmed, sometimes even irregularly to preserve additions in the outer margin. The original material has been incorporated into fresh larger pages: this sometimes causes obscuring of the writing by the overlapping paper or attachment strip.

About folios 313r-v Turyn 90 wrote "the leaf 313 was reversed in the binding, the text on fol. 313v was later canceled." The cancelling is done by a grid of diagonal lines in red ink, and I detect no difference between this red and the rubricator's ink on the adjacent pages. Furthermore, Turyn's hypothesis leaves only 20 lines, 792-811, to fill both sides of the leaf that is now lost between 312 and 313, whereas the leaf should have had about 40 lines, 20 per side. I think a better hypothesis is that the missing sheet already contained 812-835 and that for some reason 812-835 were copied again in error, and the crossing out of the version on 313v occurred when this was noticed. Perhaps one page of the original was skipped (omitting 792-811), and when this was very soon noticed, a folio with 792-835 was prepared and added in, and the present leaf 313 reversed and the unneeded (and now out of order) repetition cancelled by the rubricator.

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 85; Matthiessen 60; Mastronarde-Bremer 5; Diggle 7;

DISCUSSION:

Despite its date, C contains a very complete set of old scholia on Orestes and Phoenissae in a form closely related to M, B, and V; and Schwartz's edition gives an incomplete view both of its inventory of scholia (through neglect of most supralinear and marginal notes) and of its readings. The manuscript was burned around the edges in the fire that damaged the library in 1904; but the scholia have suffered almost no loss. The scholia and the accompanying glosses are in the same dark ink and same hand as the main text. There are additional glosses written later in much lighter ink, by a different hand (C2). These could not be reliably detected and deciphered on the microfilm, but are legible on the new images.

The missing folio in Phoen. is correctly mentioned by Schwartz in the app. crit. at I.257, 19, but is not noted in Turyn. I made a note of the omission in my collation of the poetic text in 1980, but I neglected to include this information at Mastronarde–Bremer 5, so that the Teubner edition and OCT of Phoen. also fail to record that lines 65-82 are missing from C.

DISCUSSION:

Apart from the argumenta, this manuscript contributes little annotation. Glosses (with a few short scholia) are very sparse on the triad plays, somewhat more abundant on Andromache, Medea, and Hippolytus. Most annotations are in the ink used for rubrication of the personae notae (Ar), but a few notes are in a cursive script of smaller size in a lighter ink (A2). Both the red ink and this lighter ink are now often faint and hard to read.

DISCUSSION:

The main glossation is by the original hand of the text but using a purplish ink (Aa). A second set of glosses are in a cruder script and black ink (Aa2). Further glosses appear in a fainter ink (sometimes hard to distinguish from the original hand, but at other times extremely faint (the pale brown ink described in Mastronarde–Bremer): this is here called Aa3, since at Or. 132, for example, it can be seen that the darker gloss of Aa2 has been modified by Aa3.

DISCUSSION:

Cr is very closely related in its scholia to Ox; indeed in some places where Ox differs slightly from Cr, it appears that the error in Ox could be due to a misreading of ambiguous letters or compendia in Cr; elsewhere, both manuscripts have the same glosses misplaced by a line or two. Günther believes that Cr and Ox were both copied from the same source, and there are slight differences that suggest Ox is not copied from Cr; the errors based on misreading would then imply that this source was in a hand very similar to that of Cr.

In the original annotation of Cr, using the same hand and dark brown ink as the main text, there are only a few discursive old scholia, but many glosses; the pages have two columns of text (with continuity across the columns), and only rarely is the text in the right column interrupted for a discursive scholion. Cr uses red ink only for the personarum notae. The replacement pages of the 15th century contain heavy glossation and short marginal notes (mostly etymological) in several hands different from the main scribe of the text, and some of these later hands have also added a few annotations to the original pages, especially for the first few surviving pages of Hec. and then more sporadically in Or. A more refined classification of the later hands will be needed when the scholia to Hec. are collated; for the time being I use Cr2 to designate an upright, relatively neat, but clumsy hand writing with a very fine stroke in black ink; Cr3 to designate a more cursive, irregular, and sloppy hand, also in black ink.

DISCUSSION:

The argumenta are written by the main scribe in the same dark ink as the text; the same scribe added some glosses and the personarum notae in a flat brown ink (which can appear medium dark when the pen is freshly re-inked, but is more often rather light). These glosses are designated with a plain siglum F. Many more glosses are added in a very faint pinkish ink and are recorded as F2. Least common are the additions of F3, a more regular, but not very elegant hand plausibly dated ca. 1500 by Turyn.

L will be used mainly for arguments and the lists of dramatis personae. For non-triad plays there are also sporadic metrical annotations made by Triclinius (cf.

For Orestes 1-500 these are by a hand designated here as L2, who uses a lighter ink than the main scribe; but I have found one gloss (160 ἐργασιῶν over ἐργμάτων) written by the original scribe.

DISCUSSION:

Written in South Italy. Both the material and the script are poor, and this is a palimpsest with the Euripides text on top. For Hecuba the scholia through line 981 plus a few on lines 1076, 1200, 1213 are written in a block on fols. 1r-10v, before the text of the play. In the blank space in the lower half of 10v a later hand has added a brief narrative of Orion's blinding by Oinopion and the cure of his blindness, which may be considered a scholion on Hec. 1102. On the first few folios for the text of Hecuba, there are interlinear glosses and some marginal scholia in lighter ink and a smaller and fuzzy script; after a few pages one can see in addition some glosses in a very fine black script, and a larger sloppier hand e.g. on 17r in margin; later in this play many pages have no annotation at all. Marginal notes resume on 34r and continue to the end of Hecuba: these marginal notes cover the last 350 lines of the play, for which there are only a couple of scholia in the block on 1r-10v. For Orestes some marginal scholia appear from the beginning to 53r, with very few thereafter; the poor legibility of these notes is apparently due to damage and not deliberate erasure (the pages have also been trimmed, losing words in the top margin); the glosses are either fuzzy and similar in tint to the main text or in a sharper and blacker script. A fuller set of scholia is written (through Or. 1130) after the end of Orestes, on fols. 87v-101v, with reference numbers keyed back to the text. For Phoenissae there are glosses and a few marginal notes, but the glosses become sparse later in the play. I use Ra to indicate the scholia that are in the margins of the text and Rb to indicate those in the continuous scholia on fols. 1r-10v and 87v-101v. For the supralinear glosses I use Rs for those in the browner, thicker script and R2s for those in the blacker, finer script, but the style of the second script is such that it could be the same scribe.

Between the last scholion on Orestes (one-third of the way down on fol. 101v) and the arg. Ph. (on fol. 102v), there is a vocabulary note (distinction between senses of δρᾶμα), followed by a narrative on Daidalos and Ikaros that does not match any text in TLG, a quotation of Arist. Nub. 37, and several more notes on vocabulary, not connected to words in Euripides (e.g., distinction between μειονέκτης and πλεονέκτης, ἠλίθιος and ἀκόλαστος). On this material see now Preliminary Studies, 149-152.

DISCUSSION:

Scholia on Hecuba 572-end, on Orestes 1-89 and 1037-end, with only a few on the intervening lines, and on Phoenissae 1-1661. On 116r the scholia block ends in the middle of sch. Or. 89, and there are no scholia on the next pages and indeed very few from 116-129r, containing Or. 90-1036 (there is a full column of scholia on 126v). On fol. 150v, containing Phoen. 1662-1726, a strip of paper has been glued on for repair, but there is no sign that any scholia have been covered by this repair. The same scribe has used a variety of inks. Some annotations are in dark ink, some in red ink (Rfr), some in a brownish ink lighter than the ink of the text. The red is used inconsistently for some glosses, initials of scholia, first words of scholia, or an entire scholion. The glosses recorded as Rf are in dark ink, occasionally shading toward light brown when the ink on the pen is running out; other glosses are in red ink (again, Rfr), and a few are in a light yellowish brown ink, recorded as Rf2.

Martínez Marzano, Historia del Fondo Manuscrito Griego de la Universidad de Salamanca (Salamanca 2015) 131–132

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: 114v-115v: etymologies and other notes (ἐτυμολογίαι καὶ ἄλλἄττα τοῦ πρώτου δράματος τοῦ εὐριπίδους τοῦ περὶ τῆς ἑκάβης); 115v-116r: metrical definitions; 116r-117r: short treatise on tragedy (ἰσαακίου τοῦ τζέτζου ἐξήγησις εἰς τὸν εὐριπίδην); 117r-119r: vitae Eur. and other material; 119r-v: arg.

(Ph. 1-4 and the initial sch. appear on 169v, but then long Peisander sch. occurs, and on 170v play text begins again from line 1)

TYPE AND FORMAT: Partial set of old scholia, often modified, and mixed with teachers' scholia. Blocks of scholia occur at irregular intervals, and there are many supralinear annotations and a few in margins of the text (which is sometimes in one column and sometimes in two columns). The scribe also at times neglects the line divisions of the iambic trimeters, and this may have contributed to some instances in which glosses are misplaced. Rubrication is sparingly used and hard to see except on the newest color images: red ink is used for marking off most individual scholia with a corner bracket, or sometimes a vertical red stroke through the enlarged capital initial (in black); also on some pages a red vertical stroke is placed to left of lines of Eur. so the reader can detect them in the disordered arrangement of text and scholia.

TYPE AND FORMAT: Partial set of old scholia, often modified, and mixed with teachers' scholia; there are also supralinear glosses and a few short marginal annotations. The scholia are disposed in blocks at irregular points, sometimes above and below the two columns of poetic text, sometimes in a single block at top or bottom or filling the whole page. Sometimes scholia end up on pages after the lemma, and for some sections after a particular block of poetic lines, the discursive scholia on those lines are written in one block before the next section of text begins. See, for instance, the blocks of scholia on Hecuba on folios 115r to 117r, where the scholia are also numbered in sequence in the margin, continuing from one block to the next, although no corresponding reference numbers are visible in the poetic text. In the first part of Orestes the scholia block runs beyond the page on which the corresponding text occurs, and in order to get back into closer aliognment of scholia and text the scribe seems to have omitted scholia on a stretch of lines.

This light ink has often faded almost to invisibility and sometimes cannot be detected on images; even on the original it is at times hard to discern whether an initial was omitted or has faded out.

DISCUSSION:

Vat. gr. 1824 and 1825 are two parts of a composite collection of texts, among which the Euripidean part (Zv) preserves part of Phoenissae. But unrelated folios are also bound in, as is the case with 81r-87v in Vat. gr. 1824, here called Vd. All the elements of these pages are probably the work of the same scribe, but there are different inks: a dark brown ink for text, a lighter, yellowish brown ink for interlinear notes, and the darker ink again for a further stage of interlinear notes (which seem to have been added after the lighter ones).

DISCUSSION:

The manuscript as a whole consists of sections written by several scribes, as described by Günther; and the annotation is sometimes entered by the main scribe and sometimes supplied by a different scribe (see Günther). The main text is in light brown ink on fols. 1r-9v, 17v (part of Hec.) and 69v-87v (part of Phoen.); in black ink on fols. 10r-68v (rest of Hec., all Or.), 88r-109v (rest of Phoen.); red is used for initials and for notae personarum. The scholia are sometimes in the same ink as the text and sometimes in a contrasting color (black on brown ink pages, or brown on black ink pages). On some pages of Hecuba some notes are in black while others are in light gray. Water damage has affected the scholia on many pages. Occasionally I use Xa2 to distinguish what seems to be a different hand adding a gloss on a page already glossed by the main hand (e.g., for Hec. on fol. 2v, the glosses in line 40).

DISCUSSION:

Black ink for text, red for adornment, pers. notae, initials of marginal sch.; the interlinear scholia are partly in red, partly in dark ink, and partly in a light grayish brown ink (Xo2), some of which are marked with πγ (Günther speculates that this is for Πεπαγωμένος); the relative proportions of the different colors of the glosses varies from page to page. Inks can sometimes be difficult to distinguish on the grayscale digital images, but the first hand also writes in a neater script, while the later hand (or hands?) writes more irregularly and casually. The first hand offers mainly pure Moscholopulean annotation, while the later hand draws on other sources.

TYPE AND FORMAT: A rather full set of Moschopulean marginal scholia and supralinear glossation, with some variations in wording, and a few additional annotations, possibly of his own composition.

HANDS:

The scholar/scribe is probably Georgios Phrankopulos, PLP 30135, RGK 3A 242 (see Discussion below).

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 342, 164; Matthiessen 42-43; Mastronarde-Bremer 6-7; Diggle 8; Günther 57-59

DISCUSSION:

The marginal scholia are in the same blackish brown ink as the main text, while the interlinear glossation by the same hand is in red (like the lemmata and personarum notae). A later addition in faint ink at Or. 234 is designated as G2. At the end of Hec. G has in right margin ὁμοῦ στίχοι ͵ασλγʹ: +εὐριπίδου ὀρέστης:

The identification of the scribe is persuasively made by Gaul 2008, 178-182 (following Turyn 1964, 108-109): in Vat. gr. 7 (around 1310) the same scribe copied a large etymological dictionary compiled by Georgios Phrankopoulos, and the evidence of the manner of correction and addition suggests the the scribe is also the compiler.

TYPE AND FORMAT: The pages are laid out in three columns, with the text in the two inner columns (sequence of lines across the columns) and scholia in the outer column, with occasional use of the upper and/or lower margins, even by the first hand. Argumenta are written in one wide column. The second hand squeezes in notes in free space in all the margins and sometimes between the columns. There is ample glossation by the first hand, with additions by the second. The first hand records a fairly full set of Moschopulean scholia and a few labeled as Planudean. The second hand adds scholia of other origin, some old and some teachers' scholia and at least one Thoman note.

IMAGES USED: digital images

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 54, Matthiessen 49, Mastronarde-Bremer 15, Günther 25

DISCUSSION:

In the triad the main text and Moschopoulean glosses and scholia are written by the first hand in a careful style. The ink used is sometimes a medium brown and sometimes a blacker tone. On a few pages some annotation is written in red, Yr, darker than the red of the initial rubrication of personarum notae, but probably both types of red are used by the main scribe. Subsequently (about a decade later, 1330-1340 acc. to Günther), another hand replaced some of the Sophocles pages of this manuscript and also added some notes to the Euripides portion. I follow Günther in calling this hand Ya (it appears very rarely in Or. 1-500), but suspect it is still the same scribe working at a later stage. Another hand, Y2, has added in a more cursive style additional notes from a variety of sources; this hand uses a contrasting color of ink, darker when the first phase is in light ink, and lighter when the first phases is in darker ink. The text and scholia of Tro. are said by Schwartz and Turyn to be copied from V; any my cursory examination of some notes confirms this so far. For more about the hands, see Prelim. Studies 89-92.

Y is of special interest because it has scholia labeled with μαξ for Maximus Planudes. For discussion of this label and commented edition of the scholia that are so marked see Prelim. Studies 89-103.

DISCUSSION:

The text and glosses are in an ink that varies in appearance from dark brown to black. Marginal annotation is often added in two stages. Generally, the first stage (essentially Mosch. scholia) is in a slightly lighter ink than the main text, in finer strokes; at a second stage, Yf2, other notes are worked into the margin around the existing ones, in a somewhat darker ink in thicker strokes, often with a border drawn around the previous note.

Turyn, 57-60, notes that Yf2 has added the scholion on Hec. 87 that is marked with μαξ in Y, and he speculates that many other of the added scholia in Yf may be Planudean, but mischaracterizes what should be regarded as Planudean. See Prelim. Studies 105-106.

FURTHER BIBLIOGRAPHY:

DISCUSSION:

The first hand, known as Gr since Dinforf, added, for much of the triad, but not all, a set of Moschopulean annotation; this stage of annotation is in red ink for Hec. and Or. and Ph. 1-323 (through 69v), but in the same brown ink as the text for Ph. 324-end (70v-98r); occasionally Gr has written Thoman notes instead. A later hand has been given the separate siglum Gu since the time of Dindorf. The later date is proposed by Harlfinger, but Günther supports Turyn's view that Gu's work is closer in date to the work of Gr. Gu has added scholia in a smaller script, in brown ink, crowded around the previous annotation, and the vast majority of these additions are Thoman, though sometimes in a slightly different wording than found in other witnesses, or in agreement with Zm or ZmT against ZZa. In some places, however, as in early parts of Hecuba, Gu adds Mosch. annotation (where Gr had already supplied the Thoman and omitted the Moschopulean).

It has become apparent as collations of the Moschopulean and Thoman witnesses have expanded to cover almost all the triad that Dindorf's edition omits quite a number of glosses by both scholars, so that between these omissions and the instances in which Gr's gloss is Thoman or Gu's is Moschopulean, Gr/Gu entries in Dindorf give only an approximate and uncertain idea of these two commentaries. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that some elements added by Gu are not for either source.

One peculiarity is that the scribe Gu often allows a word already written by Gr to serve as part of the Thoman scholion he is adding. For example, at Or. 272, above εἰ μὴ the Moschopulean gloss written by Gr is ναὶ τοξευθήσεται, supplying a main clause because the mss generally treated 271 as spoken by Electra and 272 as Orestes’ reply to her; the Thoman gloss on the same place is ναὶ βεβλήσεται, but Gu writes only the verb βεβλήσεται above τοξευθήσεται and expects Gr’s ναὶ to be read with it.

DISCUSSION:

The text and annotation on the triad are the product of several scribes working in tandem (see Günther's description). The marginal scholia were written in black by Ioannes Zeianos (noteworthy for especially exuberant upsilons, omegas, and deltas in litagure), and the supralinear notes are almost all by the rubricator (who also did the initials of the marginal notes): both of these are referred to as Z, as they represent the main work of entering the Thoman commentary. The red ink appears quite faint on the images and has entirely disappeared over the top line of some pages, where water damage has apparently occurred (sometimes these can be made out by autopsy). A few supralinear notes are added in dark ink, which I record as Zc (Günther uses Ζa). These are added later than the rubricator’s glosses. At Or. 362 Zc added the abbreviation for the ending -ων on πλησιάζων and ἐλλιμενίζων, which the rubricator had left without ending; at 421 the gloss was first ἐφθάρη in red, but Zc added σαν in black. There is also a later hand, Z2, who uses a light brown ink. This is hard to distinguish on the microfilm, and Günther reports that Z2sometimes rewrites faded glosses of Z.

Text and annotation are the work of a single hand. This witness is a twin of Z in the scholia as in the text, and the occasional differences in the scholia between ZZa and ZmGu were interpreted by Turyn as evidence for two Thoman recensions. Günther regards ZZaT as representative of a pure Thoman collection and ZmGu as adding non-Thoman elements, reflecting a different location (Thessalonica for the version of ZZaT and Constantinople for the additional material in ZmGu). There are, however, agreements of T with ZmGu against ZZa, so a full evaluation of the nature and origin of the distinctive scholia of ZmGu (or TZmGu) will have to await investigation based on larger body of evidence than that adduced by Günther.

DISCUSSION:

The text and marginal scholia are in grayish brown ink in Hec., in a dark brown ink in Or.; in Ph. the text is in dark ink but the marginal scholia in red (Zb); similarly the initial glossation is light grayish brown for the first dozen pages of Hec., but thereafter is in red or faint purple for Hec. and in red for Or. and Ph. (also recorded as Zb). There are supralinear additions and corrections in dark ink (Zb1s). And finally there are some added in light brown (Zb2), although possibly still by the same scribe.

In the Or. section, the marginal scholia are abundant through line 809 on fol. 47v; thereafter the margins are blank, except for very few pages where one or two scholia are added by the rubricator in the side margin or bottom margin.

Folio 168r is a later replacement page with Ph. 1761-1766.

TYPE AND FORMAT: Moschopulean and Thoman glosses and scholia, metrical scholia of Triclinius and a few additional glosses and also some marginal scholia in which he justifies a variant or emendation. In addition to using the side, top and bottom blocks as needed according to the density of annotation, Triclinius sometimes has on the pages with his long scholia describing lyric cola an additional column: usually the side block contains two columns instead of one, but on a few pages with short cola in the text, one column is placed on each side of the relatively narrow text column. More rarely he writes scholia in a very narrow column in the inner margin.

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 23-41, Matthiessen 52-53, M-B 13, Diggle 13, Günther 36-38.

DISCUSSION:

T is the working copy of Demetrius Triclinius. Triclinius’ working method has been described in detail by Turyn and Günther and may be summarized here. He began with a manuscript of the triad plays written by someone else ca. 1300-1310; this scribe, generally referred to as Tz, wrote a few Thoman annotations on some folios of Phoenissae, according to Turyn (I have detected a few in Orestes and used the same modified siglum for them). In a first stage ca. 1315 Triclinius, using black ink and rounded breathing signs, added Thoman prefatory material and Thoman scholia and glosses, replacing or adding some pages (to contain the life and Thoman prefatory material). In a second stage ca. 1319-1325, using black ink and angular breathings, he added the Moschopulean life, Moschopulus’ short text περὶ τοῦ εἰδώλου that precedes Hecuba, and the Moschopulean scholia and glosses, and some of his own scholia. In a third phase ca. 1325, now using brown ink and angular breathings, Triclinius added a few more of his own notes to the surviving original pages and also replaced almost all the pages containing lyric passages. He used these new pages to rewrite neatly those pages on which he had presumably added the working versions of his metrical scholia and made changes to the colon divisions. At this stage he also added the first three pages of the codex containing his version of an epitome of Hephaestion’s ‘Handbook of the Nine Meters’ and two short metrical texts of his own composition (available on this site). In the current edition I use the siglum T unmodified when a whole page is written by T at any stage and I use T3 only in places where Triclinius has added something in brown ink to a page previously annotated in black ink. Note that the substantial metrical scholia are all from the third phase, in brown ink. De Faveri’s edition marks most of the other Triclinian notation she recorded (long marks and the like) as T1/2.

Moschopulean scholia and glosses are marked with a cross before the item (I show this by using the modified siglum T+), or else a cross immediately above the first word of a gloss if the word was already present as a Thoman gloss (this is indicated by T*). (Note, however, that there are here and there a few Moschopulean glosses to which he has failed to add a cross at all or Moschopulean-Thoman glosses with which he has used a cross before instead of a cross above.) Thoman marginal scholia have an enlarged initial. Triclinius' own scholia are also preceded by a cross, but he also adds ἡμέτερον in the margin beside or above the note (converted to τρικλινίου in the copy Ta).

Although Triclinius tells us explicitly that the two sets of scholia he adds are by Manuel Moschopulos and Thomas Magister, it should be noted that he felt free to make minor changes in wording in some instances. For instance, when he changes a reading in the text of a play, he may alter the wording of the Thoman or Moschopulean scholion to match, as in Phoen. 1041, where he changes transmitted ὁπότε to ὅτε for metrical reasons and he also substitutes ὅτε for ὁπότε in both long paraphrasing scholia on this part of the stanza.

One peculiarity of Tz's writing that can be deceptive is that the the diaeresis on iota or upsilon is sometimes written without lifting the pen between the two dots, resulting in a stroke that looks very like the macron. This misled De Faveri in one or two places and also misled a student pf mine who did a preliminary collation of some of T.

NUMÉRO DIKTYON: 66609

EURIPIDEAN CONTENTS: 1r-2r: epitome of Hephaestion; 2v-3r: Triclinian treatise ἰστέον ὅτι κτλ; 3r-v: περὶ σημείων τῆς κοινῆς συλλαβῆς; 4r-7v: slightly later insertions (described by Turyn 195); 8r-v: Mosch. vita; 8v-9r: Mosch. περὶ τοῦ ειδώλου; 9r-10r: Thoman vita; 10r-v: Thoman synopsis to Hec., dram. pers.; 11r-55v: Hec.; 56r-57r: Thom. synopsis to Or., dram. pers.; two sch. on Or. 1-2; 57v-120v: Or.; 121r-122r: Thom. synopsis to Ph., dram. pers.; 122v-186v: Ph.

TYPE AND FORMAT: Moschopuleanm, Thoman, and Triclinian commentaroies copied from T. The layout shows the same variety of formats at T, but Ta does not match T's pagination, and Ta sometimes moves scholia to a different position (e.g., placing some glosses in the margin rather than crowded above the line as in T, or vice versa).

DISCUSSION:

A very faithful copy, or perhaps a copy of a copy of, T, useful for places where T is difficult to read and necessary where T has lost pages or has extensive marginal damage (as, e.g. on fol. 81r-v, where the poetic text is intact, but the outer margin with several scholia is lost). The collation of Or. 1-500 reveals that Ta omits a few notes and a little more often omits the cross that T has in front of a Moschopulean gloss. In addition, Ta did not understand the distinction between Triclinius' placement of some crosses in front of the beginning of the gloss and some crosses above the beginning of the gloss; therefore, Ta usually places his crosses in front: that is, when T is too damaged to read, Ta may give a misleading impression that a gloss is purely Moschopoulean when Triklinios marked it as a shared Thoman and Moschopoulean gloss. When Ta is used because T is lost, the siglum Ta+ indicates that Ta has a cross before the item. One or two glosses not in T have been added by a later hand.

DISCUSSION:

This was one of a group of mss known as the Matthaei mss in the Dresden collection. In the 18th century Christian Friedrich Matthaei purchased them without knowing (according to the Dresden catalogue preface) they had been taken illicitly from Moscow libraries. Turyn, however, had written that they were "purloined" by Matthaei himself. Those not destroyed in World War II bombing were taken back to Moscow in 1947 and are now in the State Archive. Readings (mostly of the text) were first reported in C. D. Beck's edition of Euripides, vol. III (1788) 1019-1063. The reply to a recent inquiry to the RGADA states in part: "The manuscript with the works of Euripides has 278 folios. ... We want to warn you that many folios have unreadable or hardly readable text." [Note the discrepancy in the count of folios vs. the catalogue.]

IMAGES USED: None. Autopsy examination May 2012, May 2017.

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY: Turyn 91-92, Matthiessen 45-46, Diggle 10

DISCUSSION:

This manuscript has been used by editors for the text in some passages because the text is copied from V (except that Rh. 941-966 appear to be from another source), and V is damaged in places or has lost pages. V's annotations were mostly ignored in copying (only three or four items on the non-triad plays may derive from V). A few of the glosses on non-triad plays may be due to the first hand of Va, but most are by later hands. I noted sporadic glosses and very few short marginal scholia on Hecuba; of these, one scholion can be identified as Thoman, while a few others appear in Dindorf as attested in Arsenius' edition (I). There are similar sporadic glosses on Orestes and fewer on Phoenissae. I noted 14 glosses or scholia on the non-triad plays.

This manuscript is noteworthy in that it appears to be the source of paraphrasing scholia found in Arsenius' edition (he appears to have shortened Yv's paraphrases by omitting the constant repetition of each word of the text before its paraphrasing synonym). Collating these paraphrases is not yet a high priority. For a sample see Prelim. Studies 44-59.

Not yet collated. If we ignore the 16th cent. glosses that occur in the first pages of Hec., there are, by the main scribe, sporadic supralinear notes and very few marginal notes in Hec., almost all late in the play; glosses and a few marginal notes on Or. These are said to be of mixed nature, with a few Thoman elements.
