Abstract:

The Praecepta Tonica by John of Alexandria (5th-6th cent. AD) is one of our richest sources for ancient Greek accentuation and an indispensable tool for reconstructing Herodian's famous De prosodia catholica. Despite its importance, it is available only in a seriously flawed edition brought out by Karl Wilhelm Dindorf in 1825. The newedition offers an authoritative new critical text based on a thorough review of the manuscript evidence and the modern scholarship, and includes a rich collection of parallel passages intended to place the treatise in its grammatical context.
