Book Description

Among the many versions of the Alexander Romance originating from Alexandria (3rd century AD) the long Byzantine Alexander Poem takes a special place. It is transmitted in only one miscellaneous manuscript, Ms. Marcianus Graecus 408, and contains 6130 ‘political’ (fifteen-syllable) verses. This edition presents a new critical text of the Byzantine Alexander Poem with an introduction and an extensive commentary.
