Typos in Posselius

Postby bedwere » Thu Jul 03, 2014 1:59 am

I was trying to get in touch with Prof. Diane Johnson to tell her about some typos in her edition of Posselius's Dialogues. Do you agree that these should be corrected?

1587 Edition
1590 Edition
1601 Edition
1614 Edition
1623 Edition


I decided to change the accents on the ultimate so that it is always acute before a punctuation sign. The only exception is when it is in a list of alternatives. (e.g., p. 90: ἀσπάζου τὸν ὕπατον [ποιμένα, πενθερν, κηδεστν] παρ' ἐμοῦ.)

Normalized spelling for ῥᾳδίως everywhere.

You can download my corrected version from Dropbox (I used pdfedit to modify the original pdf, in case you are interested). I'll updated it once I'm finished.

I'll keep updating this post.

Looks as if you're right about the first 3 at any rate. I don't know about the others. p.100 I suspect neither is right.

Should Νικόλεος be Νικόλεως?

Why, shouldn't it be Νικόλαος in the nominative or maybe vocative Νικόλαε ?

I didn't think about that. It seems though that Posselius (or the printer) really meant Νικόλεος, if I interpret those pesky ligatures correctly.

Correction: another edition has indeed the Attic Νικόλεως

Λ. τὸ αὐτὸ ἴσως συμβέβηκεν ἄν, εἰ λεοντῆν ἐνδεδυμένοι ἂν ἦεν.


It must be a solecism. It seems to be in all the books. Maybe Posselius wanted to introduce some realistic mistake? Or maybe it's a blunder of his secretary? :D

Shall I correct it like this?

Λ. τὸ αὐτὸ ἴσως συνέβαινεν ἄν, εἰ λεοντῆν ἐνδεδυμένοι ἦσαν.
