Abstract

EURIPIDES HECUBA 59-215*) A RECONSIDERATION BY J. M. BREMER Almost a century ago 1) it was realized that there might be serious textual problems in Hecuba 59-215. Ulrich von Wilamowitz Moellendorf (UvWNT) defended the view that vv. 73-78, 90-97 and 211-215 could not belong to the original text of Euripides' play 2). His paper came too late (igog) for Murray, whose edition of Euri- pides had appeared as early as 1902; but Murray never saw reason to discuss UvWM's attack on the MSS tradition of this part of the play, let alone to leave these lines out of the text. In this respect Murray has been followed by all other scholars who produced either an edition 3) of the Heczsba or a commentary 4). Without even referring to UvWM they all print and, casu explain the traditional text. This is not to say that nobody ever agreed with UvWM's views. The grand old man just lived to see Nestle and Pohlenz 5) acknow- ledge the necessity to remove these lines. Friedrich 6) later agreed that the 'Traumhexameter' (i.e. 73-78 and 90-91) should go, but * I am much indebted to Prof. Kamerbeek, Prof. Ruijgh, and to Mr van
