Phrynichos beim Gewährsmann und beim Abschreiber Ammians

Francis X. Ryan


The article examines and finds wanting a recent thesis according to which a source used by Ammianus Marcellinus knew that Phrynichos produced his play on the sack of Miletos only after Athens had been sacked; then it proceeds to ask whether the chronological information vainly sought in the source of Ammianus has been preserved from another source by a copyist of Ammianus.
