Example text

26 Why shouldn’t we dream on the free-ranging maverick? There, all along? Sure, this book of essays Áirts with all that. But, you know, it was the post-war publication and scholarly reception of a tattered, papyrus-borne, ancient commentary on Callimachus’ Thirteenth Iamb that changed Ion’s pickle for good—and Áoated this collection. I shall return to this development after reviewing those ancient Greek testimonia. For the moment, I must just emphasise that the reference has gone unremarked by OCD3 (it really should have impacted already on the OCD2 entry).

Prose would subdivide between history, philosophy, oratory, law-codes, and (presumably) astronomy, geometry, medicine; Ànally, ‘Miscellaneous’ authors sorted books by subject-matter—cook-books, cake-making, etc. If there were one, a uniformat would require: name, then biographical data, titles of works sorted into sets by type, with the opening words of each work, plus the guestimated number of standard-length lines required for a copy. Writers who produced texts in different categories (such as Callimachus) would be awarded their main entry within the class of writings listed Àrst in the biographical sketch, and sub-entries under any headings that followed therein.

Refraction: Callimachus’ Iambi and Pinakes Most of what we know of Ion we owe directly to a combination of notes in ancient commentary compilations on two or three citations in ancient Greek texts with a couple of extant ancient encyclopedic entries for him. There is contamination between these two streams of material, and (make no mistake) since 1947 it has been a generally held axiom that the core fund of data derives from, and owes what cohesion it has, to a single prestigious library catalogue entry from the height of early second century BC Ptolemaic civilization.
