Abstract

MISCELLANEA HEPHAESTION AND CATULLUS 63 AGAIN As part of an argument against the theory that Catullus 63 derives from a Hellenistic Greek original, David Mulroy, in a well-known article (1976), has tried to prove that Hephaestion’s discussion of the galliambic metre (12.3) cannot be used as evidence for the existence of a great number of Hellenistic poems in galliambics concerned with the cult of the Mother of the Gods, as had generally been assumed since Wilamowitz 1879 (= 1941, 1-8). It will be best to set out the text at the beginning (for the sake of convenience I quote from Consbruch’s edition (1906), but I ask the reader to practice epochè with respect to Consbruch’s textual interventions and punc- tuation). Hephaestion is discussing the ionicus a minore (  Ó Ó ): T«n d¢ §n t“ m°trƒ megey«n tÚ m¢n §pishmÒ- p. 38.6 tatÒn §sti tÚ tetrãmetron katalhktikÒn , oÂÒn §sti tÚ Frun¤xou toË tragikoË tout¤ (fr. 14 Sn.) tÒ ge mØn je¤nia doÊsaiw , lÒgow Àsper l°getai , Ùl°sai , képoteme›n Ùj°Û xalk“ kefalãn , 10 ka‹ parå Frun¤xƒ t“ kvmik“ (fr. 76 K.-A.) ì dÉ énãgka ÉsyÉ flereËsin kayareÊein frãsomen: toËto m°ntoi ka‹ galliambikÚn ka‹ mhtrƒakÚn
