Euripidea Tertia is a companion volume to the Loeb Classical Library edition of Euripides. It discusses places in the text primarily of the late plays where the editor's choice of variants or adoption of conjectures required some explanation and also places where the translation needed explaining. The plays covered are
Iphigenia Taurica, Ion, Helen, Phoenissae, Orestes, Bacchae, Iphigenia Aulidensis, and
Rhesus, with addenda on earlier plays. Reviewers of the earlier volumes Euripidea and Euripidea Altera have commented on the cogency and sensitivity of his textual arguments. Serious students of Euripides, tragedy, textual criticism, and Greek metre will all want to read this book.
David Kovacs, Ph.D. (1976) in Classical Philology, Harvard University, is Professor of Classics at the University of Virginia. He has edited
Euripides for the Loeb Classical Library (1994) and written articles and monographs on Greek tragedy, Greek lyric, and Ovid.
The book is a very useful companion to his important edition, and will be required reading for students of the text of Euripides.'
