SGG 2 offers a commented critical edition of the preserved textual fragments from the Homeric studies of the Greek scholar-poet Antimachus of Colophon (floruit ca. 400 bce). If as an epic and elegiac poet Antimachus was a forerunner of the Alexandrian docta poesis, he was also an editor and scholar of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, producing an ekdosis of both poems (the first among the so-called kat’andra ‘editions’) and a syngramma, i.e. monograph, in which he dealt with biographical, exegetical and glossographical issues.
SGG 6 offers a commented critical edition of the preserved grammatical fragments of Zoilus of Amphipolis, a grammarian, rhetorician and historian, who lived in the 4th century BCE and is known as the Homeromastix (“the Scourge of Homer”). His most renowned work was Against Homer’s Poetry in nine books, in which he pointed out inconsistencies, contradictions and errors in Homeric poetry, in line with the Zetemata-type studies. The importance of his Homeric exegesis is demonstrated by contemporaries (among whom Aristotle) and later grammarians’ efforts in trying to find solutions to the problems he had raised.
