In this paper I discuss Housman’s principle of textual criticism that apographs are of no importance in the establishment of a text, and suggest reasons why this should not be a universal rule, with reference to the text of Isaios. Housman was emulated in his notoriously acerbic criticism of other scholars by William Wyse, the major editor of Isaios, and I assess the contributions of three scholars who, exceptionally, met with Housman’s approval and made contributions to the text of Isaios.

Pro Archia § 28 has been usually emended by the editors on the evidence of the (obviously corrupt) reading quibus auditis [...] hunc ad perficiendum adoravi transmitted by the Scholia Bobiensia ( adornavi — “Belles Lettres”, adoptavi — “Teubner”). On the contrary, I suggest following the text of the codex Erfurtensis (... ad perficiendum adhortatus sum ), only in the light of colometry and after extensively analyzing the evidence of some Ciceronian clausulae I propose to read sum adhortatus .

Jelen tanulmány célkitűzése kettős. Egyrészt a Timokratés elleni beszéd érvrendszereinek mélyreható elemzését kívánom nyújtani, másrészt ezen elemzésen keresztül a XIX. században felmerült és azóta is sokat vitatott szövegkritikai problémákat veszem górcső alá. Új aspektusból közelítve a korábban felvetett problémákhoz – az érveléstechnika elemzésén keresztül kiegészítve E. M. Harris meggyőző érveit – amellett érvelek, hogy a beszéd két része valójában egy jól átgondolt, precízen szerkesztett egészet alkot, így a szöveg integritását nem indokolt megkérdőjelezni.

The current study has two objectives. On the one hand, it provides an in-depth analysis of the argumentation of the oration Against Timocrates. On the other hand, the analysis focuses on the issues of textual criticism that arose in the 19th century and have been debated ever since. Approaching the problems from a new perspective – augmenting the convincing arguments put forward by E. M. Harris with the analysis of the argumentation – the study argues that the two halves of the speech are in fact parts of a well-planned, and precisely edited whole, and the integrity of the text need not be questioned.
