Although Radermacher's arguments for a late date (see especially his praefatio and his adnotationes, p. 92 and pp. 100ff.) have worn thin, the observations made by Roberts (pp. 49ff.) and especially the more recent ones of Dirk Marie Schenkeveld, Studies in Demetrius 'On Style' (Amsterdam, 1964) are too weighty to be ignored. The remarkably developed doctrine of the and the author's interest in the writing of (223–35) are some of the arguments suggesting larger distance from the first generations of the Peripatetics. Exactly where in the Hellenistic centuries the treatise should be placed remains difficult to decide because our knowledge of major rhetorical doctrines in this period is too limited and uncertain. All I venture to say is that I know of no reason to place the work close to the beginning of the Christian era or even within it.Google Scholar

6 For the former meaning see LSJ s.v. under III (cf. also Fraenkel's comments in Aeschylus Agamemnon ad v. 677 and A. S. F. Gow on Theoc. 14, 70)Google Scholar; for the latter meaning see LSJ Ibid, under II.

7 Consultation of (the old Stephanus-Dindorf) TLG s.v. (coll. 1537f.) shows repeated instances of the difficulties Galen and others had in deciding which of the alternative meanings had in ' Hippocratic' passages

8. Early examples of contrasting with a word meaning 'dry' are Od. 9.3–21 and Hes. Op. 742f. Note also at S. Tr. 1064; E. Hec. 129.

9. For his sources, see my paper' Demetrios ntpl und sein peripatetisches Quellenmaterial', Hermes 66 (1931), 241–67 = Kleine Schriften (Hildesheim, 1968), ii.151ff. In that paper I dealt with the passage 1406b9 in a footnote (249 = 159 n. 2, cited by Kassel ad 1406 b9) but in a manner apt to increase rather than to clear up the confusion. Thanks are due to my late friend Rudolf Gungerich for helping me toward a better solution.
