Western Medieval Manuscripts : Aristophanes

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This Greek manuscript contains two comedies, <i>Plutus</i> (known also as <i>Wealth</i>), <i>Clouds</i>, by the Athenian writer <i>Aristophanes</i> (c. 446-385 BCE), along with the scholia by the Byzantine grammarians Thomas Magistros and Demetrius Triclinius (13th-14th century).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Many of the leaves have been mended, in all likelihood in the 18th century. Unfortunately the letters closest to the gutter are not fully readable because they are covered with stubs or because the binding does not allow the manuscript to be opened fully.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript is cited in Aristophanes' editions as Cant. 3 or Ct3, and it was collated by P. Dobree (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''><i>Ricardi Porsoni notae in Aristophanem</i>, Cambridge 1820</a>).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
