Hi there,
Anyone know of an online Greek text of Simonides? I'm especially looking for the greek original of fragment 159.

Thanks very much.

I know that you can find Simonides in Ben Hur :roll:

I know Simonides is on the Net somewhere-about a year ago I printed out a lot of his texts to study. I'll try to find the print-outs & see if the address is on there. Also, you might try the nearest university library-Simonides will be in the Loeb Greek poets . Should be in teh PA--- section, you can just copy it from the Loeb text. hope this helps.

To which Simonides are you referring? I'm assuming Simonides of Ceus, but I have not been able to find a fragment of his numbered 159. You can try these texts:

Hope you can find the link for the texts.

As for a library, yes, well, the nearest one is 400 miles away....otherwise I would have gone there & copy'd it...

I've found on the Internet Archive a Latin commentary on Simonides' fragments ,
The fragment is quoted here on page 195.
On the TLF database, I couldn't find fragment 159 under Simonides' sub-database but searching that quote I've found it quoted in
Commentaria In Dionysii Thracis Artem Grammaticam, Scholia Londinensia (partim excerpta ex Heliodoro)
Page 459, line 22

Ἔνιοι δὲ ἐν συλλαβῇ ὑπερβατὸν πεποιήκασιν, ὡς Σιμωνίδης
ἐν ἐπιγράμμασιν <fr. 159 B4> <Ἑρμῆν τόνδ' ἀνέθηκε Δημήτριος ὄρ-
θια δ' οὐχὶ Ἐν προθύροις>, ἀντὶ τοῦ «οὐκ ὄρθια».
