A new edition of Simonides' poems with introduction and commentary

This project establishes the text of Simonides--chiefly the elegies (the papyri of which were published first in 1992) and epigrams, and provides commentaryto those writings. This project involves examining the papyri containing Simonides' elegies in Oxf ord and also determining which of the many epigrams ascribed to him deserve inclusion. It also entails consulting in Heidelberg and Venice the manuscripts of the Greek Anthology containing his epigrams.
