Chapter Summary

J.Diggles review of Textual Tradition of Euripides Orestes is the culminating third of three monographs on the complex manuscript tradition of the Byzantine Triad, complementing the studies by K. Matthiessen and D. J. MastronardeJ. M. Bremer. D. modestly describes his residual task (all that remains) as being to add a few more details and repair a few more weaknesses in that corner which has remained untouched of the monument erected by Turyn. His purpose is in fact twofold: on the one hand to complete the Triad picture in respect of Orestes, with a sufficient overall view of the picture as a whole, and at the same time to explain and justify the procedures to be adopted in the apparatus of his forthcoming Euripidis fabulae iii (containing also Phoenissae). The conclusions reached are broadly in line with those of both Matthiessen and Mastronarde.
