Commentary

Philological commentary

From this fragment, too, only four lines are preserved. It exhibits the strophe numbers 11 and 12, and the metre is 4x14 syllables in a 7/7-rhythm. If part of the Krodhavarga it should be from a second section.
n1Emendation according to Sieg and Siegling 1983: 74 fn. 6.

Remarks

In one frame with THT 38 und THT 39. Small fragment from the centre of a leaf.
