Summary

This paper raises, and attempts to answer, some questions about Stobaeus’ citation of excerpts from early Greek melic, elegiac and iambic poetry. Many of these were raised and answered in an excellent if short article by David Campbell thirty years ago (Campbell 1982) and in order not to unbalance my own treatment I shall occasionally have to repeat rather than ignore some of his points. One important piece of evidence has been added since 1982 by the publication of a papyrus, and another recently published papyrus allows an old guess to be made rather more convincing.
