Abstract

The article examines the Mythiambus 117 of Babrius, attested both by medieval manuscripts and by the ancient tabulae ceratae Assendelftianae of Palmyra. This study tries to revaluate the ancient tradition: at line 9 of the Mythiambus the word νύξας can thus be regarded as an ancient variant.
