Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> MS Dd.11.70 is a collection of <i>Theological treatises, scholia to dramas and the Iliad, and treatises on metric</i>, consisting of 5 parts, copied by known scribes. The first three Parts are on paper, the last two are on parchment and have two independent foliation sequences.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Part II is the most extensive and contains only scholia to Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes. It could be the result of the union of three initially independent sections, as suggested by the quire signatures. The three sections were all copied by Michael Souliardos (15th-16th century) and were brought together at an early stage: <div>2.1 ff. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(57);return false;'>26-112</a><br />2.2 ff. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(231);return false;'>113-149</a> (signatures αʹ-γʹ)<br />2.3 ff. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(305);return false;'>150-228</a> (signatures [α]ʹ-[ε]ʹ)<br /></div><br /></p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The scholia to Sophocles were printed by Adrien (de) Turnèbe (also known as Tournebus or Turnebus) in his edition (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>1553</a>) combining the text from Part II of Dd.11.70 with the one from Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, grec 2711 (14th century), as Turyn has demonstrated (Turyn 1952, p. 82).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Matteo Di Franco </p>
