This chapter discusses the P.Rain.inv.7, a lexicon to Dem.21. It is a sheet of papyrus codex that dates to the fourth or fifth century C.E., and can be linked to the ancient philological and historical scholarship on Demosthenes in several ways. It notes that several of the entries found in this lexicon closely resemble the entries in Harpocration. The chapter reveals that the length of the lemmata, as well as the nature of the comments, suggest that these entries are abbreviated discussions that were excerpted from commentaries.
