Chapter Summary

According to the classifications of the production of the Hellenizing school in scholarly literature, the translation in question belongs to its third period. In the Armenian version of David's Commentary, the citations from Porphyry's Isagoge in the majority of cases exactly coincide with the Armenian version of that work. The Armenian version of Porphyry's Isagoge, like those of Aristotle's Categories and On Interpretation, belongs to the second period of the Hellenizing translations, while David's Commentary was translated in the third, so the translators were different persons. Some different readings supported by the Greek original make it possible to propose emendations to the published texts. The discrepancies between the two versions are incomparably more numerous and significant than the variae lectiones within the Greek and Armenian manuscript traditions.
