The banishment of Oedipus, again

David A. Hester

Abstract


In spite of M. Davies’ arguments (in “Prometheus” 17, 1991, 1-18) for the authenticity of the final scene of the Oedipus Rex, it is very likely that this passage was altered – maybe by Sophocles’ grandson – when OT, OC and Ant. were assembled into an artificial trilogy.

Keywords


Sophocles; Oedipus; Greek tragedy; textual criticism
