R. Porson's conjectural readings at Rhesus 424, 442, 703, 863, 871, 883 are examined in order to contribute to the study of his philological method. It results that: 1) Porson's conjectures are not far removed from the paradosis; 2) Porson gave great wheight both to the manuscript and the indirect tradition; 3) he tried to justify his conjectures by giving examples of analogous corruptions in the same author or in others; 4) he quoted not only passages in support of his conjectures, but also of the transmitted text; 5) he sometimes tried to normalize the text both on the linguistic-syntactical and on the prosodic-metric level.

Abstract

R. Porson's conjectural readings at Rhesus 424, 442, 703, 863, 871, 883 are examined in order to contribute to the study of his philological method. It results that: 1) Porson's conjectures are not far removed from the paradosis; 2) Porson gave great wheight both to the manuscript and the indirect tradition; 3) he tried to justify his conjectures by giving examples of analogous corruptions in the same author or in others; 4) he quoted not only passages in support of his conjectures, but also of the transmitted text; 5) he sometimes tried to normalize the text both on the linguistic-syntactical and on the prosodic-metric level.
