Chapter Summary

There are numerous problems inviting further critical attention in the lyric stanzas 40-175 of the Parodos of Aeschylus' Suppliants. While hoping to discuss issues in 86 ff. in a further article, this chapter discusses the first three strophic pairs. M's lineation has left its mark on the line-numeration 40-8 to 49-57. That lineation is likely to be ancient, as virtually symmetrical, and with divisions before the apostrophized particles in 43 and 46 in line with ancient practice;4 but it should not be regarded as mandatory. Most editors have combined at least 47-8/56-7. Page followed Paley in combining also 41-2/50-1, 43-4/52-3 and 45-6/54-5 so as to give a stanza of five verses.

Keywords: Aeschylus' suppliants; lyric stanzas; strophic pairs
