Ancient Greek Texts

The dialogues of Plato were arranged in nine tetralogies by the grammarian Thrasyllus of Mendes in the reign of Tiberius (14 CE to 37 CE). Later the tetralogies appeared in two volumes, tetralogies I-VII and tetralogies VIII-IX. The manuscript authority for these volumes are different.

A is the oldest representative of the second volume of tetralogies. It dates to the 9th century CE and is now preserved in the Bibliothèque nationale de France (the national library of France, located in Paris).

The German classicist August Immanuel Bekker (1785-1871) gave the siglum A to the manuscript. His Platonis Diologi (in eight volumes, published 1816-1823) helped lay the foundation for the present critical study of the text of Plato.

B is the oldest representative of the first volume of tetralogies. It was copied in 895 CE for Arethas of Patrea and is now preserved in the Bodleian Library (the main research library in the University of Oxford).

In 1801, E. D. Clarke purchased the manuscript from the monastery of St. John the Theologian on the Island of Patmos (in the Aegean) and sold it to the Bodleian Library. It is sometimes called the Bodleianus Clarkianus, after its present location and its English discoverer.

The German classicist Martin Schanz (1842-1914) gave the siglum B to manuscript. His unfinished edition of Plato's dialogues helped provide the basis for the now standard Oxford Classical Text edition of Plato.
