The review has the same pattern as 12) above: first, description and assessment of Diggle's methodology; his technical excellence and individuality as editor and critic; second, the reviewer's detailed notes on the new edition. The volume contains two plays dependent solely upon the Laurentian manuscript; the other five have richer traditions, and ancient scholia, which together complicate an editor's work. Diggle has made many new findings in the manuscripts, and there were far more important earlier individual play-commentaries to digest than for Tomus I; Diggle's Praefatio includes an incisive judgemental survey of these landmarks.
