Abstract

MISCELLANEA PLATO SYMPOSIUM 175B1: ÜOS AS THE NOMINATIVE SINGULAR OF THE INDIRECT REFLEXIVE PRONOUN The presentation of Plato’s Symposium is notoriously complicated: Apollodorus reports to his unnamed friends what Aristodemus had told him about the feast at Agathon’s house. 1 ) Accordingly, after the opening passage in which the arrangement between Apollodorus and his friends is settled (172a1-174a2), the whole narrative depends on ¶fh at 174a3; the accusative with in fi nitive constructions depending on this ¶fh represent what Aristodemus told Apollodorus in direct speech. In the sequel, ¶fh is often omitted, and should be supplied mentally, for instance at 174a6 ka‹ tÚn < ¶fh > efipe›n . In other cases, Apollodorus omits to turn Aristodemus’ report into indirect speech, so that ¶fh , ∑ dÉ ˜w (etc.) do not have Aristodemus as the subject, but one of those present at the party; thus at 174a9 and 174b3 Socrates is the subject of ∑ dÉ ˜w and ¶fh respectively, and at 175a10 Agathon is the subject of ¶fh . In other cases, again, there is no verb of speaking at all, as at 175a1, where the context makes it clear that Aristodemus is the speaker. The actual words
