AuthorTheon (grammaticus)
Quoted Author[Pindarus, Pythia 12]; Euripides.
Genrecommentary (selected lemmata)
Typemythology
Contentsexcerpts 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".
Proper namescol. 1: Seriphioi (R) Polydektês (3 + R); Perseus (R + 3); Danaê (2); Gorgôn [Gorgô] (2 + R); Medousa (R); Zeus; Athêna (3); Euryalê (Q + 1); Sthennô; Euripidês; Oidipous (Q); Melas (Q);
col. 2: Theôn; Artemidôros; Pindaros.

Front / Backblank
State Preservation"lower part of the end of a book-roll, containing the bottom portions of the final two columns of a commentary on Pindar, Pythians 12" (ed. princ.): col. 1 = 30 lines, broken off to the left; col. 2 = 8 lines (much washed-off) + end title (with decorative strokes around it). Some disorder (3 differents hands, additions in right-hand margin of col. 1).
Number of columns02
Column width07.5
Letters per line35-37 (R)
Lectional signslemmata and commentary separated by blank spaces, and probably also by paragraphos (cf. col. 2, 35-36); common abbreviations (cf. ed. princ.); "some accents and apostrophes in the lemmata and occasionally elsewhere; iota adscript capriciously written; corrections by additions and alterations above the line" (GMAW); end title with decorative strokes.
Handthree different hands (two for the main text + one for the marginal additions), all described as "tiny, undistinguished semicursives" in ed. princ.;
hand A = l. 1-25 (probably continued in col. 2): tiny, informal, round, upright, very irregular bookhand, written fairly rapidly and without care by a practised scribe, generally writing the letters separately, but occasionally with ligatures and cursive elements;
hand B = l. 26-30 + col. 2: round, semi-cursive, leaning forward, rapid and irregular, smaller and more closely spaced than A;
hand C = marginal additions: round, semi-cursive, leaning forward, rapid and irregular, similar to B, but smaller.
