Show Summary Details


This chapter examines a commentary on Dem.22, the P.Stras.inv.84, which dates back to the late first century C.E. It looks at the surviving commentary, which is composed of a series of discussions of eight lemmata taken from Dem.22. The first discussion in the papyrus is about the office of the epistateis or the proedroi, and its lemmata may have appeared in the previous column. The other seven lemmata are paraphrased and are discussed in the order that they appear in Demosthenes.
