Example text

In this case of course he could have found the singular attested for F and a number of its descendants in Schneider, but it does not appear he ever consulted that edition, and anyway he was not the kind of scholar to be greatly interested in MS support for his corrections). AD’s final -ς is explained by Cobet and Hartman as due to dittography (the first - of σ με α being mistaken for a sigma). The explanation is perhaps not entirely satisfactory but I have no better one, and anyway the case for the singular is so much stronger that we should not worry too much about it.

Quaerimus’ is not necessarily a conscious correction by Ficinus: he may have used the present to avoid the cumbersome pluperfect subjunctive that would have been necessary in indirect speech. But I do not see why the ADF reading should not be followed here. Certainly the fact that elsewhere in Plato we find π λαι ζητο μεν (Euthd. 289e1; Men. 93b6; R. 420c1; Phlb. 18d7; Epin. 989a1; Cra. 424a6 the MSS are divided, though the primary ones all seem to read ζητο μεν) is not an argument, because this context differs from all others in that the relative clause depends on a perfect infinitive.

This strengthens the suspicion that something is wrong. Besides, I am reluctant to assume that Plato was really interested in the niceties of Lydian genealogy (so rightly H. Herter, Kleine Schriften [München 1975], 555 n. 102). (3) το Λυδο cannot here refer to Croesus, even if Croesus is meant by Λυδ ς in Hdt. ). In this context, το Λυδο would mean ‘the present king of Lydia’, which is nonsense. ] 7,6 (pronounced 343/2 BCE) Μακεδ ν is Philip, in 17,10 (pronounced 336/5 BCE) it is Alexander. It is not as though Λυδ ς ever refers to Croesus as being the Lydian κατ’ ξοχ ν, in the way Homer is ποιητ ς.
