Abstract

Menander’s intertextuality with inscriptions is a rich and rewarding one; this paper explores the relationship between the language of Attic inscriptions and the text of Menander. It focuses on a very minor area of grammar, the feminine perfect active participle, examining its phonological and its morphological development. A recently discovered papyrus has given us a precious indication about Menander’s orthography which editors have overlooked; this paper aims to correct this neglect.
