Euripides, Phaethon by James Diggle( Book )
7 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 343 libraries worldwide
The surviving text of the fragmentary Phaethon of Euripides depends chiefly on two sources: two pages from a Euripidean manuscript, written about A.D. 500, and a papyrus of the third century B.C., which contains a substantial part of the parodos. These sources are supplemented by a number of citations in classical authors and by a recently published fragmentary hypothesis. Professor Diggle has examined all the manuscript evidence and offers many decipherments. He gives a text of the play and of the hypothesis, an exegetical commentary, prolegomena and appendices, in which he discusses the treatment of the Phaethon myth in classical literature and attempts a reconstruction of the plot of the play

Euripidea : collected essays by James Diggle( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 308 libraries worldwide
James Diggle is one of the foremost Euripidean scholars of our time. His ground-breaking Studies on the Text of Euripides, culminating in his new edition of the complete plays in the Oxford Classical Texts series, have won him a world-wide reputation. This collection comprises forty-one papers and reviews (including five papers not previously published), designed as a companion to the new Oxford text. The published papers and reviews have been lightly revised and updated, and equipped with copious cross-references. There are full indexes. The collection not only offers a commentary on an extensive range of problematic passages in the plays; it also provides an up-to-date grammar of Euripidean usage - linguistic, stylistic, and metrical - and deals with many aspects of the manuscript tradition. It will be an indispensable handbook for all future scholars of Euripides
