Abstract

The margins of the most important witness of the Greek Anthology, now split between Heidelberg (Pal. gr. 23) and Paris (Suppl. gr. 384), present a large paratextual corpus with essential indications on the authors and the content of the epigrams, as well as variae lectiones and exegetical hints about the poems. The paper aims to reconsider these marginalia, which have not been thoroughly examined since Karl Preisendanz (1911). Starting with the work of Jacobs, the first part retraces the history of previous studies of the hands recognisable in the manuscript, in both text and margins. The second part shows how Preisendanz’s results should be updated, particularly with respect to the relationships between the annotators indicated as J, C, A*, L, A1. Building upon these conclusions, it will be possible to reassess and substantiate the history of the preparation of the codex, as well as to deepen our understanding of the philological and historical value of these marginalia.
