Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Didymus's commentaries on Dem. 9–11 and 13, which compose the P.Berol.inv.9780. It notes that most of the commentary on Dem. 9, or Demosthenes' Third Philippic, is lost. The text presented in this chapter starts with the end of the commentary on that speech. Unlike the Dem. 9, the commentaries on Dem. 10, 11, and 13—otherwise known as the Fourth Philippic, Reply to Philip's Letter, and On Organization, respectively—are preserved in almost their entirety.

Keywords: commentaries; Didymus; P.Berol.inv.9780; Third Philippic; Fourth Philippic; Reply to Philip's Letter; On Organization
