The aim of my paper is to outline an overview of the collection of the Carmina popularia. In particular, I will criticise the modus operandi employed so far in arranging this corpus and meditate on what can be deemed ‘folk song’ in ancient Greece. As case studies, I shall take the five begging songs handed down to us. I shall also provide a revised text and a critical apparatus for each poem.
