Chapter Summary

The First Stasimon of Hecuba begins with issues meriting discussion in both strophe and antistrophe. ποντιάc (-άδοc) occurs here only in tragedy, whereas there are upwards of forty-five occurrences of πόντιοc in Euripides, including two-termination use at Alc.595. In Helen, if the subject of 146870 is Helen, not you, Helen, it follows that Helen is not the subject of a second-person verb in 1476, as in the conjectures of Wilamowitz and Murray(the only ones ‡ considered by Kannicht), and Jackson. The epode of the Second Stasimon of Bacchae ends with a compliment to (the poet’s) Macedonian hosts. The obtrusive τᾱc (τάc) and the second τε were excised respectively by Burges in 1814 and Bothe in 1826, followed by Hermann.
