0003AD 2P.Harris 01, 13 (J.E. Powell, 1936)9152248 + M-P 0437.01discussion on Euripides' Cressae (Cretan Women): about the place of action (Crete, not Mycenae) and about the king in the play (Katreus, not Atreus).
0004AD 1P.Mil.Vogl. 02, 44 (M. Vandoni, 1961)8950398hypothesis to Euripides' Hippolytus II, mainly agreeing with the manuscript tradition apart from some differences in wording and word order (cf. Luppe).
0005AD 4 - AD 5MPER N.S. 01, 24 (H. Gerstinger, 1932) [fr. 2] + WJA N.F. 1 (1975), p. 71-82 + 2 (1976), p. 237 (R. Kannicht) [other fr.].39481714 (fr. 2) = M-P 1480.01fr.1v: probably the beginning of a bios of Sophocles,

0006AD 1 - AD 2PSI 08, 1000 (P. Viereck, 1927)27552463 = M-P 1195.01beginning of a story on Pleuron and Calydon (interrupted) relating to a single lemma from Il. 13.217, preceded by an indication of the Homeric book. The text, though very fragmentary, shows similarities to Schol. D(13.218) and Schol. T (13.217-218).
0007AD 3 - AD 4P.Bon. 01, 6 (O. Montevecchi, 1953)20671157hypothesis to Iliad 1 (related to v. 26-73). First sentence comparable to medieval hypothesis (cf. Montanari); probably original summary (according to Cribiore).
00083 BCP.Hamb. 02, 136 (collective edition, 1954)23680633 = M-P 1170.03prose text of uncertain nature, following a citation of Iliad 2.101-109. It may be a prose summary of the following lines at least until v. 211 (cf. Nachtergael) or simply an exposition on the sceptre of Agamemnon (cf. Erbse + Van Rossum-Steenbeek).
0009AD 2Hellenika 28 (1975), p. 60-65 (G.M. Parassoglou) = P.Yale 02, 128 (S.A. Stephens, 1985)1732M-P 1209.02commentary on two lemmata taken from Od. 04.336 + 343 (or possibly Od. 17.127 + 134), and on another unidentified passage. Contents close to Homeric scholia and to Eustathius; references to Aristotle (cf. Hist. Anim. 578b) and to Philocrates (most likely from his Thettalika, cf. FGrHist 601 F 1-2).
0010AD 2 - AD 3ZPE 88 (1991), p. 157-164 (L. Koenen, W. Luppe, V. Pagan)499M-P 0217.01commentary on Callimachus' Aetia (book 1?, cf. Hollis 1982 + Lehnus), containing a prose narration of the myth of Teuthis (cf. Paus. 8.28.4-6), preceded by another story involving Apollo. No lemma is actually preserved on the papyrus. The connection of this papyrus with the Callimachean diegeseis is questionable according to VRS.
00111 BCP.Giss.Univ. 04, 42 (H. Eberhart, 1935)67772458fr. A: on Hercules and Megara (?) (Lenaerts, referring to Diodorus 4.10.6 and to ps.-Apollod., Bibl. 2.4.11 and 2.7.8);

col. 2: catalogue of ships.Some similarities with Dictys Cretensis and possibly others (extended discussion in VRS).
0013AD 2P.K÷ln 07, 285 (M. Gronewald, 1991)4712M-P 2463.51mythological narration, possibly on the myth of the Proetides (daughters of Proetus), cf. ps.-Apollod., Bibl. 2.2.2 + other parallels.
0014AD 1(A) P.Ryl. 01, 22 (A.S. Hunt, 1911) + (B) P.Yale 02, 110 (S. Stephens, 1985)43292457(B): narration of events related to the life of Achilles (marriage of Peleus and Thetis; birth of Achilles and Thetis' attempt to make him immortal; rearing of Achilles by Chiron; an event from Achilles' tenth year; judgment of Paris);
(A): narration of events after the death of Achilles (removal of the Palladium from Troy by Odysseus and Diomedes; journey of Odysseus and Phoenix to Skyros to fetch Achilles' son Neoptolemus; arrival of Eurypylus from Mysia).
These events are known to have been treated in the Ilias Parva of Lesches, but there are some differences with the epitomes of Proclus and ps.-Apollodorus.
0015AD 2 - AD 3ZPE 12 (1973), p. 17-23 (A. Henrichs)1793M-P 1211.01glossary and scholia to Od. 16.427-474; 17.37-66, with two explanations of mythographic contents:
l. 12-14: on the Hermaios Lophos;
l. 21-25: on Aphrodite and the Homeric epithet "chrysŕ"
.Similarities with Scholia D and Eustathius, also with Apollonius Sophista.
0016AD 2P.Oxy. 31, 2536 (E.G. Turner, 1966)4015M-P 1498.02excerpts from Theon's Hypomnema on Pindar's Pythians (according to end title): at least 8 lemmata from Pyth. 12, most of which are followed by mythographical explanations and mainly concerned with the figure of Perseus. Closer to paraphrase than to commentary. No direct relation to extant scholia, but Turner comments: "verbal echoes of 2536 can be recognized in the extant scholia at a number of places".
0017AD 1 - AD 2P.Oxy. 64, 4427 (M. Richter - P. Parsons, 1997)471M-P 0211.11marginal scholia on Callimachus, Aetia III, fr. 75.11-15, mentioning the story of Lygdamis.

0019AD 2P.Oxy. 52, 3648 (M.A. Harder, 1984)569M-P 0248.01parts of Conon's Diegeseis 46 and 47 (or extensive summary thereof), telling the story of Aeneas and the foundation of Lavinium, Alba and Rome, as well as the story of Althaemenes and the colonization of Crete. Cf. summary by Photius, Bibl. III, 35 Henry (= FGrHist 26 F 1).
0020AD 3P.Oxy. 03, 420 (B.P. Grenfell - A.S. Hunt, 1903) = P.Lond.Lit. 72 (H.J.M. Milne, 1927)09660388hypothesis to Euripides' Electra, not otherwise known. Fairly similar to other hypotheseis according to Luppe, rather a rhetorically elaborated type of hyp. according to VRS.
0021AD 3P.Tebt. 02, 268 (B.P. Grenfell - A.S. Hunt - E.J. Goodspeed, 1907)07670338long extract from the Greek original of Dictys Cretensis' Bellum Troianum (= IV, 9-15).

0024AD 2 - AD 3CQ N.S. 15 (1965), p. 52-55 (J.W.B. Barns - R.A. Coles) = P.Oxy. 31, 2544 (J.W.B. Barns, 1966)0952M-P 0426.01hypothesis to Euripides' Phoenissae (as known from the manuscript tradition).
0025AD 2(A) P.Oxy. 27, 2457 (E.G. Turner, 1962) + (B) BICS Suppl. 32 (R.A. Coles, 1974) = P.Oxy. 52, 3650 (R.A.Coles, 1984)09270454hypotheseis to Euripides' Alcestis, Aeolus (A), Alexandros, Andromache (B). The Alcestis hyp. offers similar phrasing but is much longer than the manuscript tradition; the Andromache hyp. mainly agrees with it.
0026AD 2 - AD 3P.Oxy. 52, 3651 (H.M. Cockle, 1984)0954M-P 0454.01hypotheseis to Euripides' Bellerophon and Busiris (the latter with title in eisthesis).

0029AD 2P.Oxy. 60, 4017 (H.M. Cockle, 1994)1053M-P 0387.01hypotheseis to Euripides' Andromache (fr. 1), Bacchae (fr. 2, with title in eisthesis), Bellerophon (fr. 4) and other unknown plays. The Bacchae hyp. is close to the manuscript tradition, the Andromache hyp. has too scanty remains to allow comparison.
0030AD 1 - AD 2Pap.Lugd.Bat. 25, 2 (R.W. Daniel, 1991)0904M-P 454.21hypothesis to Euripides' Melanippe Sophe (similar to the manuscript tradition).

The recto has some resemblance with the manuscript tradition (hyp. I), the verso, despite some similarities, is totally different both from the manuscript tradition and from the hyp. in P.Oxy. 44, 3160 + P.Strass.inv. gr. 1401.
0040AD 2P.Oxy. 03, 574 (B.P. Grenfell - A.S. Hunt, 1903) [description]17001193end of a hypothesis to Iliad 11 and indication of the following book (12). The text agrees partly with that of the extant scholia.
0041AD 3P.Oxy. 44, 3159 (M.W. Haslam, 1976)2016M-P 1185.01col. 1: end of a hypothesis to Iliad 7 (summarizing from l. 442), which does not correspond to the manuscript tradition;
col. 2: glossary to the same book (not mythographic).
0042AD 3(A) ZPE 4 (1969), p. 175-176 (J. Schwartz) + (B) P.Oxy. 44, 3160 (M.W. Haslam, 1976)2041M-P 1207.03col. 1 + col. 2 (beginning): end of a glossary to Od. 1 (not mythographic);
col. 2: hypothesis to Od. 2;
col. 2 (end) to col. 4 (beginning): glossary to Od. 2 (not mythographic);
col. 4: hypothesis to Od. 3.Both hypotheseis differ considerably from the manuscript tradition and from the hypp. on P.Ryl. 01, 23 and P.Ant. 02, 69, although they have a comparable structure.

Gallazzi)13800643 (A+B)prose introduction to the Iliad narrating antehomerica (col. 21-22), following the text of Il. 2.251-875 (col. 1-18) and the title (col. 20). On the verso of col. 12 is a quotation of the first two lines of Il. 1; the same quotation appears below column 22, together with a stichometric note (mentioned by Milne, but not printed by him nor by Roberts).
0047AD 2O.Bodl. 02, 2171 (J.G. Tait - C. PrÚaux, 1955)48961737list of scenes (paintings?) from the Trojan and Theban cycles, some of which could originate from tragedies. Compare Vergil, Aen. 453-493.
0048AD 3P.Oxy. 34, 2688 (J.R. Rea, 1968)5373M-P 2463.01series of five questions and answers on antiquarian subjects, in the style of Plutarch's Quaestiones Graecae:
(1) (incomplete) subject unknown;
(2) on the temple of the Paphian Aphrodite;
(3) on Hermes and his caduceus;
(4) on the "tomb of silence" in Argos and Amphiaraus;
(5) on the "gymnetes" (people) near the Pillars of Hercules.
The second and third questions are almost exactly the same as on P.Oxy. 34, 2689; for the other stories (esp. 3 and 5), some minor parallels can be found in various authors (cf. ed. princ).
0049AD 2 - AD 3P.Oxy. 34, 2689 (J.R. Rea, 1968)5374M-P 2463.02series of questions and answers, in the style of Plutarch's Quaestiones Graecae, of which two (on the Paphian Aphrodite, on Hermes and his caduceus) are exactly paralleled in P.Oxy. 34, 2688.
0050AD 3P.Oxy. 13, 1611 (B.P. Grenfell - A.S. Hunt, 1919)54302290extracts from a work on literary criticism (by Didymus ?), concerned with various independent topics (several quotations).
fr. 1, ll. 38-100 (= section 2) is a discussion on Caeneus, the mythical king of the Lapithae, and quotes a long extract from theGenealogiae of Acusilaus of Argos (= FGrHist 2 F 22) which may have influenced the scholia on Homer and Apollonius Rhodius. The section ends with a quotation from Euripides' Alcmeon in Cor. (= fr. 73a Nauck) and a short discussion of it.Although other fragments are also related to mythological figures, the focus of these discussions (with many quotations) is not clear:
fr. 2, ll. 121-127: on Hercules fetching horses sprung from Boreas (?), with a quotation from Ion's Omphale;
fr. 8, col. 1-2, l. 5 (cf. Lobel): quotation from Damastes of Sigeion;
fr. 8, col. 2, ll. 5-11 (cf. Lobel): quotation from Hellanicus' Peri ethn˘n;
fr. 8, col. 2, ll. 11-20 (cf. Lobel): quotation from Palaephatus' Tr˘ika;
fr. 8, col. 2, ll. 21-24 (cf. Lobel): quotation from Abaris;
fr. 15, ll. 271-272: mentions Hades and Odysseus.
0051AD 2P.Oxy. 20, 2260 (E. Lobel, 1952)2432471 = M-P 0096.11extract from Apollodorus' Peri the˘n (?), concerned with the epithets of Athena. Comparable to P.K÷ln 3, 126 (= P.Coll.Youtie 1, 1), P.Herc. 242 III, 247 III and 433 IV; close relation to scholia, Apollonius Sophista, and other minor parallels (cf. Henrichs).
0052AD 2 - AD 3P.Oxy. 27, 2463 (J.R. Rea, 1962)5302861 (+ suppl.)learned discussion on the legend of Poimandrus, clearly different from the treatment in Plutarch, Quaest. Gr. 37. According to Livrea, it is part of a commentary on Callimachus' Victoria Berenices (Suppl. Hell. 256-257), probably by Theon.
0053AD 3P.Oxy. 62, 4309 (M.A. Harder, 1995)238M-P 2455.01learned commentary dealing with Thessaly and some of its founding heroes.
Links to the Catalogue of Ships, numerous quotations from authors not later than 4/3 BC, as well as the critical attitude of the author towards his sources, suggest that these fragments might be part of Apollodorus' Peri Ne˘n or of a work making use of it (cf. ed. princ.).
00541 BCP.Oxy. 08, 1086 (A.S. Hunt, 1911) = P.Lond.Lit. 176 (H.J.M. Milne, 1927).22871173 = M-P 1173commentary on Iliad 2.751-827, of comprehensive scope (covering almost the entire Homeric text), explaining difficult words or phrases, geographical and mythological references, textual variants, reasons for the use of Aristarchean critical signs.The following comments have been singled out for their mythographic interest:
col. 1, ll. 1-7: on the river Titarŕsios;
col. 1, ll. 8-9: mention of Magnes, son of Aeolus;
col. 2, ll. 48-51: on the dwelling-place of Typhon.
0055AD 5 - AD 6 - AD 7 (?)P.Oxy. 20, 2258 (E. Lobel, 1952) + P.Oxy. 30, p. 91-92 (E. Lobel, 1964) [additional fr.]5230186 (+ suppl.)marginal scholia and other explanatory matters accompanying poetical works by Callimachus, arranged in three sections:

0079AD 1P.Oxy. 37, 2812 (E. Lobel, 1971)4376M-P 0343.04commentary on a poetical text (most likely a tragedy), discussing the roles of Poseidon and Apollo in the service of Laomedon. Most of the preserved text (col. 2, 1-36) appears to be a paraphrase from the section of Apollodorus' Peri the˘n dealing with Apollo (cf. Rusten). It contains inter alia a quotation from Dionysius Scytobrachion's Argonauts.
0080AD 2Dionysius Scytobrachion, 1982, p. 53-64 (J.S. Rusten)565M-P 0343.03fragment from a commentary on an Argonaut story or from a treatise on literary criticism, discussing several episodes of that story, possibly by comparing the Argonautica of Apollonius Rhodius and of Cleon Curiensis, and quoting from Dionysius Scytobrachion's Argonauts.
0081AD 2P.Oxy. 53, 3711 (M.W. Haslam, 1986)168M-P 0075.21probably commentary on Alcaeus, dealing with matters of early Lesbian history and saga (selected topics rather than continuous commentary):
fr. 1, col. 1: the Lesbian "lion-law" (perhaps taken from Hellanicus) and a narrative concerning Macar and a bronze lion made by Hephaestus;
fr. 1, col. 2: various accounts of Dionysus Omestes.
As to the specific genre of this text, there are two opinions that are commonly adopted among scholars: the text is a commentary stricto sensu (cfr. R÷sler 1993 and Liberman 1999, II, p. 127) or it is a learned treatise with the subject of the Lesbiaka or a historiographic work containing citations of Alcaeus (cfr. e.g. Giannattasio Andria 1995) . The problem arises from the fact that the preserved fragments never give any paraphrastic-grammatical information, but only elements of historical-mythological observations, with references to specific auctoritates . A. Porro (CLGP, p. 226) mentions that the parts of the text are arranged as in a hypomnema, still only in one part there is a lemma from Alcaeus at the beginning (Alc. 130b, 9-11 on fr. 1 II 31-33), other references to the work of Alcaeus are integrated within the exegesis: this seems to rule out that, if the work is a commentary on Alcaeus, it comes from a hypomnema with continuous lemmata. Another element unusual for a commentary stricto sensu is the absence of lectional signs as the paragraphos or the coronis.

col. 3: on Calypso's instruction to Odysseus to keep the Bear on his left, referring to Od. 5.276 sqq. and mentioning Od. 7 (244?), mainly concerned with mythical geography.The geographical nature of the text is comparable to P.Mich. 18, 760.

fr. 26: on Stesichorus' innovations in mythology (comparison of his version of some legends with those of other poets).

Concerning the genre of the given text scholars agree that it is not a traditional commentary. If it is a ?????????, the subject is not clear and only a few sections have the design that is similar to that of an hypomnema. Some of the scholars stress the biographical elements, like Davison (1966), who states that these fragments could have formed one book, dedicated to the lyric poets, of the so called ??????? ????. A. Porro (CLPG, p. 198) also mentions that there are, at least in the sections concerning Alcaeus, traces of the historical-literary research of the Peripatetici, as can be found in the ???? ??????? of Dicaearchus. Here a similar combination of the interest for the texts of the poet and the biographical reconstruction occurs.
