Publication Details: Basle: Evsebivs Episcopius for the heirs of Johann Hervagius, 1572

Notes: A redoubtable volume, and despite some usage, still sturdy and handsome. 'The last and most correct of Wolf's editions (according to Rieske), yet hurried over with arbitrary and unnoticed alterations from mere conjecture: the apparatus (although the various readings are by no means to be depended upon) is of value, though confused and without any order' (Ebert).
