Chapter Summary

This chapter re-examines Page's arguments from a position less committed to defence; and it advocates a different, overlooked, remedy that excises only two lines in the two passages towards the end of Medea prologue-speech. For Page, the spuriousness of 401 was a certainty, mainly because the repetition of lines which are neither a commonplace nor dramatically effective in their repetition is almost certainly due to interpolation and the position of the lines at 37980 is fairly secure. Two questions immediately suggest themselves: (a) are the lines so indissolubly paired that they stand or fall together; (b) how secure is fairly secure. It is not hard to find supporting arguments against 379. In 379, it is not clear whose heart is Page referring to wrote Jasons or Glauces.
