Preview

This chapter focuses on the P.Berol.inv.5008, which is composed of three poorly preserved fragments of a papyrus codex that dates back to the fourth or fifth century C.E. The six lexical entries contained here have been identified as an alphabetical special lexicon for use with Dem.23, which is Against Aristocrates. It shows that the content and length of the individual entries in Berol.5008 suggest that a close link with the historical and the ancient philological commentaries on Demosthenes exist.
