Chapter Summary

The maternal Xκεcία in four ionic stanzas in Euripides' Supplices presents fewer textual problems, but here too there is a challenging crux, at 45(6) in the first strophe; and there is more to be said about the odes metrical structure. This chapter begins with a metrical re-appraisal, which proves to have a bearing on the textual problem. Unless otherwise stated, the text given is identical with those of both Diggle and Collard, except in lineation. Metrical and rhetorical lengths again correspond in the strophe, which thus establishes the colometric pattern. The tautness of the design is confirmed by the climactic phrase responsion in 612/6970, the antistrophe here exhibiting another apparent reminiscence of the Persae Parodos. It is common ground that 44-5 is unintelligible as transmitted, and that ανομοι is certainly corrupt.

Keywords: antistrophe; Collard; Diggle; Euripides; Persae Parodos; Supplices 4270
