From the introduction:
"It is time," wrote Wilamowitz in 1907, "that Nauck's version of Aristophanes
of Byzantium used to be redone," and plenty of instances during the
last few years i've got had reason to ask yourself on the knowledge and discretion
of these students who grew to become a deaf ear to his injunction. no longer least, it is
a humiliating adventure to try to stick with after the younger Nauck, whose
erudition and precision must have made it most unlikely for a person to
improve on his variation of 1848. in lots of methods this version isn't really what I,
let by myself Wilamowitz, might have needed. the distinction of Erbse's edition
of the Homeric scholia have made me decrease the Homeric part to little
more than an index locorum with precis, notwithstanding i've got attempted to make
it priceless via together with all attainable move references to the lexical works
of Aristophanes. during the remark is short, and cognoscenti will
readily increase on it; however the literature on a gloss comparable to proxenos would
by itself now fill a quantity, and a dialogue of the proof for deer
species in early Greece some distance exceeds the competence of this author. Nonetheless
I have commented on these glosses the place it appeared to me that
Aristophanes used to be facing a philological challenge recognized to his contemporaries;
and to this finish i've got taken a few care to gather relevant
testimonia, on the grounds that i think that with out such support old glosses can
mislead instead of inform.
The glosses and testimonia are given in Latin, grown rusty via years
of instructing classical civilization, however the observation is in English, for the
simple cause that i locate myself not able to speak about a few issues like
fallow-deer with adequate readability in Latin. back even though i've got made an
honest attempt to procure all pertinent books, the reader may still understand that I
have no longer had entry without problems to a tremendous library, in order that i discovered it impossible
to fee all my citations of the D scholia to Homer, which whilst a new
edition is out there needs to at some point be in comparison with Aristophanes.
