From Aristotle to the Hypotheseis. Didascalic Information between Athens and Alexandria
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The hypotheseis to some ancient dramas contain valuable information concerning the year of performance, as well as the authors and plays competing in the same contest. Similar information is also found in five fragments from the Διδασκαλίαι by Aristotle, in ten fragments from an anonymous work entitled Διδασκαλίαι (and attributed to Aristotle by the most important editors of Aristotle’s fragments, Rose and Gigon), and in a group of inscriptions found in Athens and edited by Millis and Olson. Although it has been widely assumed that all pieces of didascalic information contained in the hypotheseis and in the inscriptions ultimately go back to Aristotle, it can be argued that some data require Eratosthenes’ chronological studies and, therefore, could not have been contained in Aristotle’s Διδασκαλίαι. Furthermore, Aristotle’s Διδασκαλίαι and the anonymous Διδασκαλίαι need not be strictly identified.
