This volume collects together the scattered quotations of the Greek writers of the sixth to the fourth centuries BC who first recorded in prose the tales of Greek mythology (the 'mythographers'). Volume 1 is an edition of the texts, whilst Volume 2, which provides the commentary, will followin a couple of years' time. Here Professor Fowler presents new texts of Hekataios' Genealogies, Akousilaos, Pherekydes of Athens, the mythographical works of Hellanikos, Andron of Halikarnassos, pseudo-Epimenides, Herodoros, and many other ancient Greek mythographers. The texts are based on a fresh examination of manuscriptsand papyri, particularly of the minor scholia to Homer. Read together for the first time, these texts represent an important and understudied genre of early Greek literature.
