This paper deals with the modern vulgata of Sophocles’ Oedipus rex 1025-6, where the conjecture τυχών (Markland) has replaced the transmitted text τεκών in almost all recent critical editions. On the basis of the dramatic context (particularly ll. 1016-46), I argue that the transmitted text is correct and that the ancient scholion on ll. 1025-6 provides evidence for this.

Abstract

This paper deals with the modern vulgata of Sophocles’ Oedipus rex 1025-6, where the conjecture τυχών (Markland) has replaced the transmitted text τεκών in almost all recent critical editions. On the basis of the dramatic context (particularly ll. 1016-46), I argue that the transmitted text is correct and that the ancient scholion on ll. 1025-6 provides evidence for this.
