Three fragments (primum published by Karl Wessely in 1897) which contain the final part of the first book of Xenophon's Hellenica seem to attest a different book division of the first book: also other ancient sources (the Alexandrian grammarian Harpocration, the geographer Stephanus of Byzantium, and some medieval scholia), which the author discusses, seem to confirm that in the antiquity Xenophon's Hellenica were divided in a different way respect to the division known thanks to the medieval manuscript tradition.

Abstract

Three fragments (primum published by Karl Wessely in 1897) which contain the final part of the first book of Xenophon's Hellenica seem to attest a different book division of the first book: also other ancient sources (the Alexandrian grammarian Harpocration, the geographer Stephanus of Byzantium, and some medieval scholia), which the author discusses, seem to confirm that in the antiquity Xenophon's Hellenica were divided in a different way respect to the division known thanks to the medieval manuscript tradition. Many elements confirm this different book division: a coronis, signs of paragraphoi, and a versus reclamans. Two more fragments belonging to this papyrus roll were not published by Wessely: an inspection of the papyrus roll allowed their edition.
