The volume shows very high technical excellence and grear flair in conjecture, in a difficult task, the editing of fragmentary texts. As well as book-fragments (quotations in other ancient authors), a large proporton of those selected are papyri published since about 1900; they have greatly amplified our knowledge of ‘lost’ tragedies. More important, they have transformed our knowledge of satyric drama, with six otherwise largely ‘blank’ plays of Aeschylus and three by Sophocles represented in the volume. The review considers the original texts and scholarly publications upon them, and the editor's selection and methodology in presentation; the reviewer then offers detailed notes and suggestions upon many of the selected texts.

Keywords:   papyrus discoveries, selection, editorial methodology, satyr-plays, Aeschylus, Sophocles
