Diggle has edited the acclaimed and now universally standard critical text of Euripides’ complete plays (see also 13) below for Tomus I 1984); Tomus III was published in 1994. The review assesses Diggle's re-appraisal of the manuscripts and secondary evidence, his critical methodology, and not least his widespread textual interventions, palmary emendations, powerful conjectures, and occasional ‘notes’ in his apparatus. Tomus II contains seven plays, six of which come to us only in the famous Laurentian manuscript (see 7) above); in Studies Diggle offer a learned philological commentary on selected passages from these plays. The review ends with some detailed comments and suggestions on the new edition.
