So long as literary studies are eamestly pursued, the final 
Word on Aeschylus will remain to be spoken. There are, and 
must always be, large gaps in our knowledge, not only of 
historical and social facts, but also of the facts of language. 
Nothing less than the recovery of an immense body of Greek 
literature now lost could supply the materials for the comptetion 
of the mosaic With Aeschylus in particular the difficulty of 
attaining to a perfect comprehension is intensificd, and that 

In the first place his own style, at least in the later plays, is 
exceptionally Condensed. Its specific gravity is extraordinary, 
and — though in a sense other than that meant by Aristophanes — 
his line, when weighed against those of the other dramatists, 
will make theirs kick the beam. He does not yield all his 
thought at the first reading, nor at the second; even at the 
twentieth the Student need not be surprised to discover that he 
has all along been missing the füll force, the precise tone, the 
exact point of a word, a /Sjy/Aa, a line, or a passage. Over and 
above this weight of primary meaning packed into a given 
number of words, it is recognised, though perhaps not so gene- 
rally nor so fully as it should be, that the style of Aeschylus is 
peculiarly allusive. While saying one thing, and saying it with 
power, his language is apt to be highly chaiiged with metaphor, 
of which the füll Contents only become ^Murra 9up^m^ as the 
reward of prolonged study. In a word which at first sight 
appears to bear a simple 'dictkMiary' meaning there is apt to 



nifi a parmllel thread of reference, of a religious, political, social 
or ' literary ' bearing. If Aristophanes, however much he may 
be speaking with the playful captiousness of comedy, makes 
Aeschylus (v^dKauf op /Sf t«09, the modern reader must assuredly 
•hare in the difüculty of comprehension. It would, however, be 
weil if the modern Student attributed the difficulty to its proper 
cause, which is not the grammar of Aeschylus, but this extra- 
offdinary compression of thought into the smallest receptacle of 

In the sccond place the text of Aeschylus has for the most 
part come down to us in a much less satisfactory State than that 
of the other dramatists. Ooubtiess between the fairly sound 
PrptneihiHS and the almost hopcless corruptions of the SupplUes 
there are gradations in the condition of the text. Doubtless 
also the degree of corruptncss is often greatly exaggerated by 
critics, and the Medicean text of the C/ioep/wri, for example, is 
in reality much sounder than is usually supposed. Nevertheless 
no Scholar doubts that every species of vitiation, from a simple 
misreading to an unintelligible and unmetrical Jargon, has its 
place in the codex upon which, almost alone, we depend for the 

These considerations should makc it unnccessary to apologise 
for the appearance of yet another edition of the ChoepliorL It 
is no disparagement to the Icaming or insight of previous 
commentators, who have contributed their more or less consider- 
able portions to the correction of the text and to its exegesis, 
that they should be followed in their tum by one who has 
laboured for no few years to understand Aeschylus and to gather 
competence for dealing with his text and its intcrpretation. It 
will not, I hope, be considered egotistic in a preface if I pre- 
miae that, since the appearance of my edition of the Supplkes 
in 1889. my reading has been largely directed towards further 
werk upon Aeschylus, which I might undertake after fuller 
preparation pour mieux sanier, l see no reason to modify in 
any important respect the critical principles set forth in the 
iotroduction to my earlier work ; but in respect of the stringency 
of their application I trust that the interval has not been without

I( will bc obscrved that I havc not followcd the praclice of 
niany modern editors nf Greek drama in supplying a complete 
metrical analysis of thc lyrics. This Omission is not due to lack 
eilher of study of the subject or of reci^^ttion of its Jmportance. 
In Ihesc matters thcre is still much to be leamed. and I agree 
with Dr Verrall (Clila^ittfr)' Appendix II.) that there isat present 
too great a tendency to argue in a circle. Wecklein appears 
to be of the ume opinion. The arrangement given by 
J. H. H. Schmidt in his Kuttslfertiun der GritcbisckeH PetiU 
(1868) Is too much bound up with arbitrary alterations of the

It it tn enor to suppose that novelty of Situation counted 
fer little with the Athenisn audiencc; Aristotle doea not dwell 
upon fxvXiffit Tor nothing. Human nature was much the same 
in that rcspcct, and though the Grecks were only working 
tonrds the complctcly original invention of plot excmpHAed 
in Agathon's Authtus^, Ihey preferrcd at least to have the old 
Ulei newi)' told. K the spectator knew the general outline oT 
the Story he was at once on tenns with the piece, but the 
question how the poct would impart frcshness to the treatment 
was or great intcrest to a people who lovcd «oiim cVu^mv, and 
to whom Kt Kpäjtßtf was dcath. 

Dcspite the diAercncc of title, the Choepluri oi Acschylus, 
the EÜctra of Sophcxles and that of Euripides have the same 
lubject-mattcr, the vcngeancc of the loyal chtldren of Agamem- 
non upon his murdercra. Thew thrce extant' dramas of Orestes 
the Avenger aflord an exccllent example of what can be done 
in the way of dJversifying a plot, thanks to 'inventing for 
oneself* and ' artisticully handling,' whilc not 'undoing' the 
•tory'. The prccise amount of absolute originality in the details 
intröduced by Acschylus, Sophocics and Euripidcs rcspcctively 
cannot, of course, bc ascertaincd. Litcrature «nd oral tradition 
Bupplied many a varianL Homer, the Ifostoi, Stesichonis, 
Findar, populär story-tclling with its usual accmlons and 
confusions, all contributcd somcttiing to the matcrial which 
was distilling in the alcmbic of the playwright's niind. It 
must, bowever, be rcmembcrcd that evcn if no incident or 
Situation in the piece Js in itself uncquivocally novcl, a much 
deeper 'invention' may be shcwn in the use of that which is 
old. Acschylus did not invent the robe in which Agamemnon 
was entangicd and murdcred. Such a conccption might bclong 
to any man. But he did invent the intcnsely dramatic con- 
duct and the profoundly imprcssive specch of Orestes as he 
unfolds the garment in the Cliotphori. The originality which

Tbe (arge acope offered for thc introduction of deUils on the

the firiend of ClyUemnestra and Aegixthus. He is to swear* that 
Orestei hat been accidentally killed in a chariot-race at the 
Pythian gamet. Meanwhile Orestes, as bidden by the oracle, 
will Visit his father's tomb and oAer libations and a lock shorn 
from his hair. Afkenvards he and Pylades will return with the um 
which, they will [>retend, contains the ashes of Orestes and which 
they have prepared and hidden. The lamenting voice of Electra 
being heard within, they all withdraw. 

Electra enters and chants a ^p^yrot «iro irminf«, telling of her 
nnceasing lamenutions, in which no one shares, for her father*s 
ihameful dcath. She appeals to the nether powers for vengeance 
and implores them to send Orestes. 

The Chorus (of IloXirtSff of Mycenae) enters, the parodos 
taking the form of a kommet with Electra. The women are I'i 
motherly in their sympathy, they recognifie the abominable wicked- yi 
ness of ClyUemnestra, but they feel that Electra should restrain 
her hopeless Opposition to the powers that be ; she must wait for 
the help of Heaven and Orestes. 

Electia replies that she has no choice ; it cannot be allowed 
that t parent should die and be forgotten. Moreover there would 
be no check on sin. She describes the intolerable Situation, 
with Aegisthus on her father's throne and in his bed. ClyUe- 
mnestra even makes a festival of the day on which her decd was 
done; she also curses Electra, and especially for having saved 


The Chorus is endeavouring to console Electra with the 
issurance that Orestes will keep his word' and come, when . j 
Chrysothemis is scen approaching with Irri^wL in her hands. 
On entering, Chrysothemis declares that she also grieves, but 
finds it policy to yield. Whereupon Electra reproaches her with 
ibrgetting her father for the sake of her own comfort She herseif 
will accept no such terms. She is prepared for the worst, even 
when Chrysothemis wams her of a new punishment in störe. 

As Chrysothemis is about to proceed on her mission, Electra j[ 
asks for the explanation of the hm^ and learns how Clytae 
noeitrm has dreamed' that Agamemnon retumcd to life, and that 
bis ioeptie, planted upon the hearth, sent forth shoots which

overshadowed all Mycenae'. Encouraged by this news, E 
enlarges upon the wicked audacity of a woman who could 
such tribute to the husband she had murdered, declares it w 
for Chrysothemis to offer it, and exhorts her rather to 
Agamemnon to come up as avenger. To this Chrysotl 
yields, but bargains for silence. 

The Chorus believes that justice is coming, and bewail 
woes of the house of Pelops. 

ClyUemnestra, with an attendant, now comes forth to sa< 
to the Apollo before the door. She rebukes Electra for 
abroad and speaking ill of her. * I do not deny the slayin^ 
ri Au»; ¥iM ctXcK, ov« ifia fuivrj. He had no right to sacri^ic 
child Iphigenia, and I had the right to avenge her.' 

An eUiuhus of the forensic kind follows, and Electra clii 
it by urging'* You admit you slew my father. Could any 
fession l)e more disgraceful, whether you had cause or not ? 
fact it was Aegisthus who tempted you. Agamemnon ha 
choice but to slay Iphigenia. In any case you had no right t« 
because of a killing ; eise you must be killed in tum. It is 
pretence. Is your living with Aegisthus part of a just retribi 
or your treatment of us}^ 

Clytaemnestra rejoins with threats, and then proceeds 
her sacrifice, praying Apollo for a propitious outcome ol 
dream, and hinting at wishes which she will not speak alo 

The Paedagogus now enters. He teils Clytaemnestra th 
brings 'pleasant news'* from Phanoteus — that Orestes is < 
The shock to Electra is great ; but Clytaemnestra is all cager 
and the oUl man describes in a powerful p^crif the imag 
death of Orestes in the Pythian chariot-races. Certain Pho< 
he says, are bringing the ashes to Argos. 

ClyUemnestra rejoices in a sense of relief^ and taunts El 
with her discomfiture. The messenger is led in, and Elect 
left without to lament her helplessness. In a komtnos with hei 
Chorus attempts consolation : ' Despite the death he died,

For the death of Clytaemnestra Electra has a plan, 
man is to go and teil her that Electra has borne a ( 
beyond doubt the inother will bc so far moved by the h 
of her daughier, as to come and visit her. 

There follows an appeal to Zeus, Hera and the 
Agamemnon, and all betake themselves to their respec 
in the plot. 

Meanwhile the Chorus sings of Acrope, false to A 
how the sun changed his course in horror. 

Shouting is now heard in the distance, and one c 
attendants as oyycXos reports the slaying of Aegisthus b 
when the latter, pretending to be a Thessalian traveller tc 
had been invited to assist in preparing the sacrifici 
They are bringing the dead body with them; and, \ 
arrive, Electra exultingly crowns Orestes and Pylades, 
upbraids the dead Aegisthus and taunts him with his in 
his wife. The body is then removed. 

Clytaemnestra is seen Coming, and there arises some 
on the part of Orestes. He shrinks from slaying his mc 
though Phoebus has bidden it. He distrusts the wisdo 
an oracle, and, when he goes within to wait, he d 
luctantly — Btottn S* et So^ci raBt, (erw. 

Clytaemnestra enters in a carriage and attended 
handmaids. She alights ostentatiously, and Electra s: 
acts the slave in assisting her. 

The mother proceeds to defend her actions. Agamt 
no right to slay Iphigenia. It was not to save his counl 
the sake of Helen and Menelaus. Moreover, he came 
Troy with a mistress. • Ought I to have killed Orestes il 
had been tempted from honie ? * 

Electra accepts the offer of rrappt^la. * Your plea is . 
Your natural Icwdness was to blame. Before Iphigenia 
you werc bedizening yoursclf. You rejoiced at news 
succcsses. And even if Agamemnon did slay Iphig 
härm had / done, or Orestes ? If bloodshed is to pur 
shed, Orestes and I should kill you.* 

Clytaemnestra replies that Electra must be forgiver 
bom to love her father most She herseif is not so ful 
what has been done, and, if she does not recall Or 
because she is frankly afraid.

between that datc and thc production of bis own drama, thcrc 
can have been no such intcrval of dcsuctude that the ncw 
manager, actors and audience were all ignorant of the tradition 
as well as of common reaiton. 

ir thcn Euripides had .seci) the play pcrformcd and yet wrote 
the obnoxiuus pa^üage, he Stands convictcd of somcthing worse 
than malicc. If he had not scen it performcd, but had mcrcty 
read it, he Stands convicted both of malignancy and also of a 
lack of intelligence which is very untikc him, ivhcther as a 
niinble thinkcr or as a practical playwright. 

It tnif^ht pcfhaps bc suggcstcd that the po-tsage im not aimcd 
at the Choep/iori in particular, but at the currcnt legend, and at 
an ävaywpiaitö^ containcd thcrcin and conventionally repcated 
by dramalist» and others. Euripidcs in his vexation may have 
wishcd to put an cnd to the voguc of uhat he considcrcd to be 
so irritatingly improbable. It is extremely difficult, hoivcvcr, to 
hold this opinion in vieu' of the facta (i) that exactly ihc same 
itcnifl of the rccognition are given in exactly the same order, 
(j) that the very word* dixtinctiy re-echo Acschylus (aKt^at... 
vpaartSiiaa, ißunrripoiff, (i^v^aatta). The common consent u'lth 
which an allunion to the ChotpfKri hu been at once auumed by 
readers of the two pUy> >■ perhapa suflicient evidence in Itielf. 

That the allusion in worsa than carping, boidcs bcinj; in 
exccrable taste in the circumitances, and that It is either limply 
malignant or (to forcc a morc generous inlerpretation upon it) 
intcndcd to bc comic, is obvious from the conspicuous over- 
straining. The 'hard ground,' for example, is so purely gratui- 
tous as alonc to expose the writer. 

That writer, I am convinced, was not Eunpides. In this The crii 
vicw I find mysclf countenanced by an essay of A. Mau', who J^-"/" 
arguGS that w. 518 — 544 in the Euripidean' text are (likc so •><»'"»» 
man)- in other parts of that nnuch acted, much read and much 
wronged populär dramatist), an Interpolation. Miu, it ts truc, 


they are often meanwhile utiliscd to bridge over the necessary 
intervals betwccn ' acts,' or to lend variety to the action, they 
nevcr lose their organic conncciion with tliat action itself. 
j^part, however, from this important artistic fact, we have to 
remembcr that, as wo now read the word» wilhout the ac- 
companiment of the aciing, the 'danciiig' or the music, the 
long lyric passagc is cmpticd of a ciiicf attraction whicli it 
^would posscss in ihc theatrc for those who could apprcciate finc 
rhythmic gcsturc and the best of GreeW music, It should bc 
Tioted also thal the Orrsläa was a trilogy, and thal. in view of 
«Jic large amount of p^ff« to come al the close of this play and 
in the Eumeuides, Acschylus may well havc dccided to intro- 
^ucc a somcwhat larger quantity of lyrics as ncarly as possible 
2n the middlc of the wholc Performance. 

(ii) Wc cannot treal ihc komiiwi as a Suspension in the 
«Development of the action becausc it consists mainly of lyrics. 
Jf the thoughta, feelings, provocations and prayers which arc 
expressed in the passage had becn expressed othcrwisc, such as 
5n a dialogue betwccn Orestes and Electra, in a ^^<ri«, or in 
9 ■ forensic dispute " bctween Electra and Clytaemnestra, wc 
should have becn under nomisapprchension as to thcir bcaring 
«ipon the deed to which evcrylhing is tcnding. The manncr in 
^vhich Aeschylus works up the justiücation of the deed', the 
Resolution of Orestes and the sympathy of the audience, is 
jpeculiar to himself, and the koiniiioi is pari of the mcans 

(iii) To undcrstand this ü^wit (v. 473) we must projcct 
^Mirselves inlo the agc of spells and incantations. The lyric 
«f^als actually claim to be such a spell". like the S(<r«iKK 
4^»« of the Eununidtj. Its Icnglh is an dement in its power,

§ 24. Tlie Hupiiig of ClytaemutUra, 
Personaliy I should have been unconscious of any 1 
in regard to Clytaemnestra's reception of the alleged 
gers. Therc is noihing in Aeschylus (as there is in E 
1 to indicatc that shc and Acgisthus werc in a constant 
apprehensjon conccniing the retum of Orestes. They 
therefore, prepared to view with suspicion anyone who 
to arrtve. It is truc that Clytaemnestra last night had 
which might casily have bcen interpretcd as Orestes 
interprets it 1 but tliere is no sign whatever that Clytat 
suspects its purport, until it flashcs upon her at %>. 92; 
Tticovaa. rovS' Ö^tc (fp«f n;it)f). As SO often Happens, i 
the meaning of the vvarning from the events, and Ihen 
how Clytaemnestra could be so lacking in sagacilj 
drcam-rcaders of in: 37 sqq. offer no special inlerpretali 
them Ihc vision simply impiies the anger of the injuri 
and this Clytaemnestra has expected or hopcd to app 
the offcring of the xaaL 

Beforc approaching the house Orestes has complei 
guiscd himself a'i a merchant, and, when he and Pylade 
at the doors, they, thcir porters, their baggagc and theii 
are all strictly adapted to the imposture. Their a 
indifference is admirably auumed. After knocking, 
affccts the impaticnce of a man who has other conccrn 
own \ he does not ask for hospitality, but only to 
message dclivercd. Therc was absolutely nothing I 
arouse the suspicion of Clytaemnestra. Moreover, onc 
Chief characteristics in Aeschylus is regal pridc. Shc 
what is demanded of grcat ladies. If she occasionall 
the hypocnte for her own purposes, it Is donc in the grau 
She would not consider ttvice the question of shew 
customary hospitalities to these visitors, More than 01 
insists on ' what is becoming to a hoiise like ours,' and f 
a house there was but one possible behavJour. 

So far the wiscst woman tnight have been deoeive« 


admitting the guests, and shc has heard tbe bare news that 
Orestes is dcad; but inasmuch as therc is 'a muter of the 
housc ' and, according to the rigid ruic of Greek etiquette, a man 
19 the proper pcrson to talk to men ('tt is more secmly'), the 
details and guarantees must be given to llim. 

It is truc that, according to the nursc, Aegisthua is bidden 
to bring his body-guard (i>. 7Ö5). The notion that Clytae- 
mnestra is suspicious after all is probably based upon thii instruc- 
tion. It docs not appear that she nccessarily laid a mcaning 
stress upon this injunction, but why add it at all? Not, t 
belicve, becausc of any misgiving an to a plot, but because a 
body of itrangers has arrivcd on formal busincu and Acgiithui 
is thcrcfore to come in impressivc State to meet thcm. If the 
visitora happen to know somcthing of the position of iffairt 
at Argos, they will sec for themselvcs that Clytaemnestn is not 
alonc in the world, On this point she secms to be particularly 
sensitive (v. 713). 

% 35. Tlu Harte as mtsstHger. 

That an aged nurse should bc sent to feteh Aegisthus is a Ti 
contravcntion of the probabilitiesL To some extent allow-ance^ 
has to be made for the domestic conditions ofthe Greek house, 
even if that housc be a so-called 'palace'.' Clytaemncatra has 
retired to the yvtwtKMi'tnv. and is to be conceived as tuming 
to her women and giving the order to summwi Aegisthus (in 
some such words as «caWrw tw KlfivBov). Thcic ii nothing 
to shew that shc actually seiccted the nurie; but a younger 
woman would not usually bc sent abroad. It might, of course, 
havc bcen expected that the errand would be performcd by

of the AgametiiHOH 333—1051 and 1159 — 1673 (Ute end) are 
absent. The latler toss involvcd also that or the argument 
and the üpening lines of tlie CAotpliori, which followed on the 
nme Icaf with the dose of the Agameiiuion. 

Rostagno, afler a minutely detaÜed exainination, difcrimi- 
nates between three hands in the original text of the whole MS. 
He assigns Sophocles to the first, to the second Aeschyliu • 
Ptnae 1 — 707 and Apollonius (with sundry exceptions, which 
arc suppited bya fourth hand, callcd m beloiv), whilc the rest 
of Aeschylus is attributed to the third. In the Wecklein- 
Vitetli cdilion the ßrst and second hands arc idcntified. Ros- 
ta^no, howevcr, ofcn cc^ent rcasons for distinguishing thcm 
(Introd. col. ii). So far as Aeschylus alonc is concemed the 
question is of no practical bearing. \Vc have, \l is admitted, ' 
two distinct hands to reckon with, and Rostagno ' from long 
and rcpcatcd com{>arison' with othcr MSS of known a[;c, main- 
tains that the one (nhich wrote Persae 1 — 707) may be refcrred 
to the second half of the loth Century, and the other (to which 
we owc the Checpiwri) to the 1 ith Century'. On this point of 
date there is litlle variety of opinioii among compeienl scholars. 

In a work dealing only with the Choepliori wc may, without 
prejudice to the qucstion of the proper dcnominalion of the 
sevcral hands of the MS as a whole, retain the usual M for the 
hand which wrote our text. 

Another hand (m) wrote (in uncial charactcrs) the acholia 
in the margin and also interlinear glosscs. It supplics the 
arguments to tbe Seftciit, Agaiiieiiiiiiiii and EiimtHtäts, and 
also the lifc of Aeschylus. (The iiirotfitrot to the Ptrsat and the 
Prontctluiis arc by the hand which wrote their text There 
is no virö8t9K to the Sufflices.) Some have tliought m to 
bc the same as M, but the most aecomplished experts declare 
that view untenable. M writes with a ccrtain lack of care, 
and malces errors of both Omission and commission. whJle m 
is A SiopffuTiiv, who rcstorcs omittcd uords or venei, writes 
(beäides the uncial scholia) occasional minuscule notei on the

and Snpplktx. Thcrc scems to be little doubt also that Robof 
tc!k\ in preparing his text of 1552, had in his hands the Mcdi- 
ccan (Jibnim ptrvelnsUim), seilt to him at Vcnicc by Mariano 
Sawllo from Padua. Vettori (Victorius) also plainly ailudes 
to the same MS as in h*is possesaion for the preparation of his

One clear case of necessary transposition is to be found in r. 
123, which in M Stands after 164, i.e. 42 lines (or nearly a 
column's length) lower than it should be. In this instance the 
line, having been omitted by accident (perhaps because it began 
with «fpvf white the next commenced with o^f ), was [>ro- 
bably written either in the margin between the columns or at 
the top or botton) of a page, and thence supplied at the wrong 
place by a misunderstanding of the copyist Such an accident 
may have occurred dsewhere, but we are not in a position to 
demonstrate the necessity of any other transposition, and it 
often happens that, where one critic has fancied such trans- 
position calied for, another discovers very conclusive reasons 
Why the MS order is «specially effective. To me the text of 
the Cftoipfiori appean to stand in need of practically no re- 
adjustment in this respect 

Lacunae to be filied with single words or small portions of Ucunac 
lines are not rare in our text, the cause of Omission being for 
the most part self-evident (e.g. in w. 37, 42, 246, 460, 596, 799, 
955» 957» 1005)» i^lthough there are instances less easy to account 
for. That whole lines and passages may also have disappeared 
through homax>arkton and homceotelcuton is shewn by v. 
625 (where the line iw* apipi r^vx^a^pfp was omitted by M 
before the line iw* avipX ijioit iwucor^ <yißa^ and has been 
supplied in the margin by m), and by tT. 708 — 710, passed 
over by M because of the ending ra wpoa^pa, which is identical 
with that of v, 707. These again are supplied in the margin 
by m. There is very probaUy a lacuna in the neighbourhood 
of V, 1039. 

The repetition o( i^ifAH^ is a debauble question, but the 
appearance at v. 970 of wdpa ri ^öf Http answering to wdpa 
r« ^c IBtlv of V. 959 can hardly be explained otherwise than 
as indicating the repetition of the füll refrain, exactly as in

Ok. Then pray I to lliis earth whcrc in my Tathor's gravc, 
that it may bc my part to make the dream come truc. N'ay, as 
1 read it. it fits witliout a {[:lw. For if tlic snakc camc from the 
samc place as I ; if it was wrappcd. just as a child mi^ht bc, 
in swaddling-clothes ; if in its gaping mouth it took the breast 
that nouri.shed mc, and minglcd the kind inilk witli curds of 
blood. whilc sliL- für icrror shriekcd loud »vhei. this bcfel— 
surely, tliat shc thus nurturcd the drcad prodigy. incans shc 
must cruclly die. 'Tis I tliat grow äcrpeiit and take lier üfe, 
according to the bidding of this dream.

this nothing could be more for-fetched: (2) with Turnebus, tm-S« vyv, 
separating circ from irc^virictir. The fatal objection to v^ renuins, as 
well as the awkwardnesa of the previous words. 

(B) Ti% U wf9 roay be emended. (i) to«^* •i¥i>¥ (Hermann)

but the word «Mr is unconvincing and the general sense unsatis-

diseases which spring from them'), does not account for the corrup-

This 18 very strained, and ßXm^nirwf is but iittle Ilke the text. [It 
may, however, be remarked in passing that Conington's infin. wuh

According to the Homeric account (Od, 4. 514 sqq.) Agamemnon 
was tlain in the house of Aegisthus, who was living adulterously with 
Clytaemnestra. Agameronon't thip was hrought by the weather to the 
coast, and Aegisthus, whose watchman had been on the outlook for a 
year, went in State to roeet him and ofier hospitality.

T»6r* ISitr IdLtrtSMT 

The scholia point to the same reading, corrupt as it is, although the 
explanations and constructions proposed in them may be impossible 
and even absurd. Thus the construction is given as 

(i) ^Ut» tov SSot (i>. the infinitive « the oputive fon/ simpUnunt). ro 
Vi j^, iSoi 3€ nt (i>. with punctuation after fiirpov^ despite the i>osition 
of Tif, and ignoring ^) v^i^uyo¥ avr<p rov pvOfiov rov Spofiov' /ii/Sc 
vw€p^pafiM¥ iv r<p fev«SM Biofifuüff rw x"*^^*^*^' The last clause has been 
a puzzle, which may, I think, be solved (a) by running on ...Spofiov 
/iffit.,. (instead of punctuating ...Bpofiov' /irfik.,,), and so indicating 
that the latter clause is only an amplification or exegesis of the former. 
The part of such exegesis which mu plays in positive sentenccs is played 
by Mi in negative. Thus v. 640 ov Xa( itc&h irarovfitvov bears the 

SchoL ov &i afMktMmi oM vapcurunvacr^ai, SuppL 9 acrc/Syl ov ov 
trißofuw iifUi% Mi nfM^ify. Similarly here fti;^ vwtpSpafnav ouipprj^rf 
rh¥ xoAiyor is an expUnation of cJoi riv ^«»{o/Acyoy avnf rw pvSfAov tov 

But how can this be ? The answer (^) I find in a schol. on Find. 
Ol 13* a 7 (Wt yi(p Unmout h hmww ft.€Tp:..iw€$ipc ;), which explains 



be Orestes, bv a rouch holder expedient. Nothing is taid in eithcr 
scholion of Bu^w^ nor is tKere anything to shew thac iyxp^¥urOturay was 
found. If it had been, the scholiast would probably have given something 
more prectso than his hc wokXmt or mal iwl woKw xp®*"^* 

We mav (i) suppose ßkmwrofUvav to have l)een an early gloss on i^ 
yporow $€urm¥ ^ Mttawif ;(povovt * ^/xircMi^ao'ai' xpwov^f or (2) suppose 
Sie Btlvw which is unexpressed in the scholia to have originated in a 

correction /SAarro^ft^rar. The latter would leave the metrical corre- 
spondence as bad as ever. We may (3) keep both ßXawro^ivw and iy 
Xporouff Bwr <«y>ay, and suppose something of the value of - w w - to 
have been lost from the antistrophe.
