Abstract:

 
 
IN THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY at Leiden there are many unpublished autograph manuscripts and marginalia in printed editions which contain numerous conjectures on the Greek dramatists. In July 2007 and  July  2008 I spent a total of ten days examining some of them. The results are presented in this article, which is  divided into four parts: I,  The conjectures themselves; II, An assessment of the  consequences of this discovery;  III, An  investigation into why Valckenaer never published his extensive work on Sophocles;  IV,  The fate of other manuscripts on Greek drama written by Valckenaer and Pierso.
