ABBREVIATIONS IN THE CRITICAL NOTES

Arabs = the Arabic version of the Poetics (Paris 882 A), of the middle of the 10th century, a version independent of our extant MSS. (The quota- tions in the critical notes are from the literal Latin translation of this version, as given in Margoliouth's Analecta Orientalia.)

Aid. = the Aldine edition of Rhetores Graeci, published in 1508.

Vahlen = Vahlen's text of the Poetics Ed. 3.

Vahlen coni. = a conjecture of Vahlen, not admitted by him into the text.


[ ] = words with manuscript authority (including A c ), which should be deleted from the text.

< > = a conjectural supplement to the text.

  • * = a lacuna in the text.
