Abstract

The ÎœÎÎÏοÎÎμ ÎaλΠλÎac, the first work written by John Tzetzes, consists of 1.676 hexameters and numerous scholia. It narrates the events of the Trojan war from the conception of Paris to the fall of the city. This paper analyses the poem and its structure. In his later Exegesis to the Iliad, Tzetzes states that the ÎœÎÎÏοÎÎμ ÎλΠλÎc allows to "learn thoroughly, in every detail" the history of the war. Following this evidence, the macro- A nd the microstructure of the poem are analysed in order to understand how Tzetzes structured his literary work and to what end. The last paragraph deals with the title ÎœÎÎÏ?οÎÎμ ÎaλΠλÎac.
