1 For Alcaeus’ fragments I generally use the edition of E.-M. Voigt, Sappho et Alcaeus (Amsterdam, 1971) = V. For the most part Voigt’s numeration overlaps with the useful and accessible Loeb of D. A. Campbell, Greek Lyric 1 (Cambridge, MA, 1982), who followed the numeration of E. Lobel and D. L. Page, Poetarum Lesbiorum Fragmenta (Oxford, 1955). Occasionally Campbell provides fuller citations of testimonia, and on these and other special occasions when it is necessary to cite his edition, his name is appended to the reference.
Professor G. O. Hutchinson has throughout advised me, and his remarks on an early draft of this paper caused it to be redically reshaped. The expertise of Dr Bruno Currie and Dr Obbink was also indispensable. It is not of course to be supposed that these scholars agree with all I say. I delivered a version of the paper to the Corpus Christi Graduate Seminar, and owe thanks to that company—in particular to Claudia Strobel—for incisive comment as well as for organizing the occasion.
