Abstract

In 12th century some Byzantine scholars claimed to read ancient satyr-plays, but very little evidence of these readings can be found in their erudite works. It has been said that Eustathius read at least one satyr-play, Euripides' Cyclops. He quotes this and other two Euripidean satyr-plays, but an analysis of these quotations seems to hint that he had no direct knowledge of them. Therefore, a critical re-examination of Euripidean quotations in Eustathius is necessary. As a consequence, some points of the history of Euripides' text must also be reconsidered.
