The purpose of this article is to discuss and reevaluate the nature of the fragment of a dramatic dialogue preserved by P. Oxy. XXVI 2746 (TrGF adesp. 649), in which Cassandra describes to Priam, Deiphobus and a chorus the duel between Hektor and Achilles. It aims to call attention to some features of the text which may be considered firm evidence that this is a fragment of a play specially designed for theatrical performance. It also discusses again the thorny problems that have arisen on account of the unusual layout of the manuscript.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to discuss and reevaluate the nature of the fragment of a dramatic dialogue preserved by P. Oxy. XXVI 2746 (TrGF adesp. 649), in which Cassandra describes to Priam, Deiphobus and a chorus the duel between Hektor and Achilles. It aims to call attention to some features of the text which may be considered firm evidence that this is a fragment of a play specially designed for theatrical performance. It also discusses again the thorny problems that have arisen on account of the unusual layout of the manuscript.
