Subject: Classical Studies

General Editor: Stefan Schorn

Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker Continued.
Part IV is the continuation of Felix Jacoby's monumental work on ancient Greek fragmentary historians, Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker, which was published between 1923 and 1958. It includes the fragments of ancient Greek biography and antiquarian literature, a section that Jacoby was not able to publish before his death. Part IV will ultimately consist of 27 book volumes presenting the original Greek texts with translations and full commentaries, of which 3 volumes have been published in print. One volume is forthcoming in 2017, two others are scheduled for 2018. In the meantime, Brill's online edition provides electronic access to the rich materials that have been prepared so far: those already available in existing volumes as well as those that have been completed but have not yet gone to print.

Wenn es sich bei dem Baton von Eratosthenes' Πρὸς Βάτωνα um den Sinopeer handelt ( FGrHist 268 T 3 = 241 F 22), würde dies einen terminus ante quem von ca. 194 (dem wahrscheinlichen Todesjahr des Eratosthenes)3 oder wohl viel früher bedeuten. Doch liegt es näher, in ihm mit Geus de…
