EDITIONES PRINCIPES.-1496. J. Lascaris (Florence), Medea, Hippolytus, Akestis, Andromache. 1503. M. Musurus (Aldus, Venice), Eur.Tragg. XVII., to which in vol. ii. the Hercules Furens was added as an 18th; i.e. this edition contained all the extant plays except the Electra, which was first given to the world by P. Victorius from Florentinus C. in 1545. The Aldine edition was re-printed at Basel in 1537. The complete edition of Joshua Barnes (1694) is no longer of any critical value. The first thorough work done on Euripides was by L. C. Valcknaer in his edition of the Phoenissae (1755), and his Diatribe in Eur. perditorum dramatum relliquias (1767), in which he argued against the authenticity of the Rhesus.
