Demetrius Laco, On Poems II (P.Herc. 1014): A New Ordering of the Fragments and New Light on Alcaeus


P.Herc. 1014 contains Demetrius Laco's On Poems II. In the 19th century, the order of the pieces was disturbed and consequently, editions have published a disordered text. The recovery of the original numeration of the papyri via Hayter's numeration allows a clearly understanding of the topics discussed in the treatise, In addition, I provide some new readings of columns near the end that contain a fragment of Alcaeus (358 Voigt = Libermann).
