I. ABTEILUNG. Tzetzes on Psellos revisited

  • Nikos Agiotis EMAIL logo
From the journal Byzantinische Zeitschrift


The codices Neapol. III E 12 and Paris. gr. 3058 contain a short poem whose authorship is attributed to Ioannes Tzetzes. The text is dedicated to Michael Psellos and its two previous publications are based on Paris. gr. 3058, which depends on Neapol. III E 12. This article includes a critical edition of the verses and their translation. Furthermore, there is an examination within the scope of their relevance to passages, which derive from the work of Ammonios, Michael Psellos and the poem of Tzetzes on Porphyrius’ Isagoge. A literary motif might indicate a correlation to Eustathios of Thessalonike and perhaps provide a new terminus post quem for Tzetzes’ death.
