In this article1) I shall argue that the author of the Etymologicum Genuinum<br />derived his entry on φώιζειν from Orus’ Περὶ ὀρθογραφίας, and not Herodian’s Περὶ<br />ὀρθογραφίας. Furthermore, I shall attempt to reconstruct the earlier history of the<br />passage: Orus’ Περὶ ὀρθογραφίας drew upon Orus’ Ἀττικῶν λέξεων συναγωγή, which<br />in turn drew upon Phrynichus’ Σοφιστικὴ προπαρασκευή. This second part of the<br />article is admittedly speculative, but, as will be seen, it is not unfounded.
