Eine Verfeinerung von Speusipps einzigem Epigramm – Geschenke von und für Musen
The only known epigram by Speusippus is preserved in Philodemus' Index Academicorum (PHerc. 1021, col. 6,34–38) and was written on the occasion of his dedication of statues of the Charites to the Muses. A rereading of a crucial word in the papyrus reveals the true reason for Speusippus' gift: The gifts of the Muses. Furthermore, the new reading leads to a second polyptoton in the epigram so that it now sounds much more polished and sophisticated.
