TypeHomerica, mythology
Contentsfr. 1:
(a) list of the Greek leaders against Troy (col. 1 - col. 2, 3): close to the Homeric Catalogue of Ships, similar in type to the lists in Hyginus (Fab. 97), ps.-Apollod. (Epit. 3.11-14), Dictys Cretensis (1.17), Dares (14);
(b) list of the suitors of Penelope (col. 2, 4-8): close to Od. 16.247-252, less extensive than ps.-Apollod., Epit. 7.26-30;
(c) story of the Danaids (col. 2, 8-23), with an unexpected personal address (to the reader? to a dedicatee?): comparable texts in ps.-Apollod.
(Bibl. 2.1.5), Hyginus (Fab. 168 + 170), Hesiod (Catalogue fr. 127-129);
fr. 2:
list of the Argonauts: comparable (in poetry) to Apoll. Rhod. 1.23-227, Val. Flacc. Arg. 1.353-486, Orph. A 119-230, and (in prose) to scholia in Apoll. Rhod. prolegomenon C, ps.-Apollod.
