Building on the classification of manuscripts established in Mnemosyne 43 [1990], 316-40, this paper examines the relations among textual witness to the Charmides. Despite horizontal transmission of variants, the primary MSS. form a bipartite stemma: B|WQ || T (sc. Oxon. Bodl. Clarke 39, Vind. suppl. gr. 7, Par. gr. 1813, and Ven. Marc. gr. app. cl. 4.1). Against recent doubts, Q's independence is supported by its maiuscule errors that the first hands of B or W correct, by its freedom from false corrections introduced by those hands, and by a host of minor W errors of the sort that correctors generally overlook. The known Greek exemplars of Ficino's Latin version lack words that he did translate. These recur in the W tradition, of which he may have used Flor. conv. soppr. 54. Poliziano's fragmentary Latin translation rests on a copy of T. Both translators solve certain textual problems. No new source of Cornarius' translation shows itself. Stobaeus confirms the antiquity of certain variants, which agree most often with B. The few quotations in other ancient authors are too scanty to reveal their place in the tradition.
