Aeschylus, Agamemnon 195

Archibald Allen

Abstract


The manuscripts’ βροτῶν ἄλαι at Aesch. Ag. 195 is said to be in loose apposition to πνοαὶ...  πὸ Στρυμόνος in 192, “winds... that cause men’s wanderings”. But “wanderings” has not been convincingly explained. I propose emending to βροτῶν λύαι, “men’s mutinous quarrellings, contentions, strifes” as they languish starving at Aulis.

Keywords
