The paper deals with the expression πρὸ τοῦ πολέμ0υ to be found at the locus indicated in the title, which is either amended or regarded with incomprehension by the editors of Achilles Tatius. However, the expression cannot originate from him, as otherwise one would have to suppose that the author of the novel directly opposes the plot he had created. It is more likely that the expression may originally have been a marginal remark that only entered the text in the course of its transmission. In view of this, the expression needs to be deleted, not amended; in which case the problematic nature of the locus immediately disappears.
