Demosthenes, Contra Boeotum

(2nd century)

These fragments of the Pros Boiton peri tou onomatos are comprised in the remains of seventeen consecutive columns, covering 7-23 of the speech. They are written in an upright semicursive hand, clear but by no means elegant, dating from about the middle of the 2nd century. The columns, which are very narrow, vary in length from 27 to 31 lines; a deep margin is left both above and below them. Short lines are filled as usual by a conventional sign, which here has the shape of the figure 7. The text has been revised by a corrector, and to him are probably due one or two accents and in considerable measure the elaborate punctuation, for which stops of three kinds, high, medial, and low, are employed. Their use, however, is not invariably accurate. The text shows mixed relationships; there is, however, some tendency to agree with S.
