The textual tradition of Andocides’ De Mysteriis is simple: codex unicus, almost no papyri, almost no indirect tradition. Editors are therefore bound to rely on their ingenium only. This paper discusses five passages of the oration, thus showing examples of some of the problems scholars have to face in studying it.
