JUST PUBLISHED: Stephanie Roussou and Philomen Probert, Ancient and Medieval Thought on Greek Enclitics
The two authors’ collaboration on this subject began with a discussion about a passage of Greek, which took them on a remarkable journey through ancient and medieval texts on Greek enclitics, via accent marks on papyri and in medieval manuscripts. The textual problem they originally set out to solve turned out to have an answer known already to Aldus Manutius, but in the meantime apparently disparate sources of information on enclitic accents had started coming together in a surprising way. They found further exploration irresistible, and Ancient and Medieval Thought on Greek Enclitics (OUP 2023) is the result. The authors hope readers might enjoy the book half as much as they have enjoyed writing it.
