Neue Lesungen in P.Herc. 1428, Kol. 330 (olim Fr. 17) Praesocratica Herculanensia IX

image of Mnemosyne

This paper provides a new critical edition, with a short commentary, of col. 330 (olim fr. 17) of P.Herc. 1428, the ‘midollo’ of the roll containing Philodemus’ On Piety. The autopsy of the original manuscript has allowed new readings and conjectures, which can shed new light on the doxographical context of this piece of evidence. In particular, new elements clarify the way in (and the purpose for) which Philodemus mixed the Heraclitean fragments on Fire (fr. 79 Marcovich = DK 22 B 64) and on the mixture of opposites in God (fr. 77 Marcovich = DK 22 B 67).1
