(p.137) Text 2 Didymus Fragments in Harpocration
Interpreting a Classic

Craig A. Gibson

University of California Press

This chapter provides a translation, notes, and text on the fragments of Didymus's commentaries. These are attributed to Didymus by name in Harpocration's Lexeis of the Ten Orators. It shows that the bibliographical references in the lexicon may suggest a post-Augustan date, while the palaeographical dates of two surviving ancient papyri, along with biographical information from the Suda and P.Oxy.2912 suggest that it was written before the second century C.E. ended. The chapter also notes that the entries that are out of order, which are fewer than 10% of the total entries, are the result of some problems in the transmission of the text and the partial application of alphabetization in certain sections.

Keywords:   Harpocration, Lexeis of the Ten Orators, bibliographical references, ancient papyri, Suda, P.Oxy.2912
