A crucial section of it deals with the fate of Odysseus. The present study undertakes an exact evaluation of Lycophron s style in order to investigate possible later emendations and the dating of the text. Lycophron s authorship of the Alexandra is not in doubt- the poem was not written in sections, nor was it composed later.The present volume contains the Greek text with a German translation, a detailed commentary and an introduction. The book concludes with two appendices, a bibliography and an index.
