Example text

Parallels: Valerius Maximus in his dedication to the emperor Tiberius writes he has decided ‘to select from famous authors and arrange the deeds and sayings worthy of memorial’, ab illustribus electa auctoribus digerere constitui (tr. Shackleton Bailey). Hieronymus in the dedicatory epistle of his revised Eusebian Chronika in Latin writes that he has ‘inserted or added a number of excerpts from Suetonius and other famous historians’ for the period from the epoch of Troy to the twentieth year of Constantine, nunc admixta sunt plurima, quae de Tranquillo et ceteris inlustribus historicis curiosissime excerpsi, p.

See Vol. 1:99–101. See also above, n. 27. 28 section three rhapsodes are responsible for interpolations in and additions to the original works. Diels’ pupil Felix Jacoby, a late Analyst, in his Hesiodstudien zur Theogonie of 1926 and his edition of the Theogony of 1930 peeled off more than sixty percent of the epic’s verses. A difference is that Diels introduces only a single ‘rhapsode’, viz. A, though multiplicity of interpolation and addition was brought in by the assumption that the culprit had plundered various sources, as we saw and shall see.

Above, n. 28. Lachenaud (1993) 215 n. 4 is not as badly placed as Diels believed, because there are cosmogonical elements in other lemmata in Book I. This is correct, but not yet sufficient as an answer. 32 For source-allergic Diels this meant derivation from an Atomist source outside the genuine Placita tradition. But we believe that this suggestion, too, is insufficient as an explanation of the presence of the chapter at precisely this point. What is important in the treatise’s macrocontext is not in the first place the particular Atomist content decisive for Diels’ evaluation, but the general theme proclaimed in the heading Π ς συν στηκεν κ σμος.
