Chapter Summary

Most of the Teubner Einzelausgaben of Euripides antedate the relevant volume of the new Oxford Text. Stockert profits from basing his edition closely on Diggles text and apparatus, in turn profoundly indebted to Barrett. For long stretches the only difference from D. is the additional block of Testimonia (sensu lato) on each page. In the main text, S. introduces no conjectures of his own, and follows D. except at a few places. In sum, however, this is a thoroughly worthy addition to the Teubner series: scholarly, very well proof-read and pleasing to handle - the more welcome in that ones Diggle is likely to have disintegrated. In conjunction with the notes in Prometheus it makes a significant contribution to the study of Euripides Hippolytus, if perhaps more in the direction of re-opening doors than of definitive closure.
