Orestes, produced in 408 BC near the end of Euripides' life, was one of the most popular Greek tragedies and consequently was preserved in a large number of medieval manuscripts. Based on close scrutiny of the sixty most important, this book explains the complicated relationships that existed between them and reexamines the contribution made by the papyri and quotations that preserve parts of the play. Offering important new insights into problems of text and interpretation, meter, and the activities of Byzantine scholars, this important book will be indispensable to all students of the transmission of Greek tragedy and the transmission of classical texts in general.
