<p style='text-align: justify;'>Nn.3.17 is a composite manuscript made up of two originally separate parts, each of which contains the text of three tragedies by <i>Aeschylus</i> (b. c. 525/524, d. c. 456/455 BC), the first of the three great Greek tragedians. The three tragedies <i>Prometheus Bound, The Seven against Thebes</i> and <i>The Persians</i> constitute the so-called 'Byzantine triad', a selections of plays among the 'canonical' ones regularly copied for studying in Byzantine schools.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The first part, sometimes referred to as Nn.3.17.1 or Nn.3.17.A was written in the 14th century; the second (Nn.3.17.2 or Nn.3.17.B) dates from the 15th. The Greek text is cited in the editions of Aeschylus as Lc for Parts I, and as Lh for Part II. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
