Available only for academic teaching and research provided that this header is included in its entirety with any copy distributed. This edition may not be reproduced or used elsewhere without the explicit permission of the TLH project. For enquiries, please contact us.


Due to current browser limitations, certain characters in printed editions may not always be similarly displayed in the electronic version. In such cases, the following representations have been chosen for display purposes:

This text contains editorial emendations of MS readings. For the mark-up of these emendations, see sub heading Correction below. In the HTML format, these emendations are encoded as hyperlinks. Clicking the links will display the MS readings in a pop-up window.

To facilitate searching, macrons used to indicate long vowels in the printed edition have been omitted from the html display.

Encoding principles:


In his printed edition, Meyer has in some places emended the reading of the MS. These emendations are encoded in TLH by means of the <corr> tag with two attributes, namely the “sic” attribute, indicating the reading of the MS, and the “resp” attribute, indicating editorial responsibility. Editorial responsibility is indicated as follows: “p” indicates print editor and “e” the editor of the electronic edition. TLH has not made any alterations to Meyer’s text.


This text has not been normalised.


No quotations occur.


End-of-line hyphenation does not occur. Hyphenation elsewhere in the printed edition has been reproduced in the electronic version.
