Example text

13, and several attributed to other orators—and applies to them a succession of what he terms ‘crude stylometric tests’:107 his conclusion is that internal variations within each of the speeches tested outweigh any detectable variation between them. In the second of the chapters he moves on to more ‘refined stylometry’, comparing all the other forensic speeches with Lys. 108 Perhaps surprisingly, given that the book focuses so heavily on stylometric analysis, Dover’s conclusion seems to be that it is not a reliable tool for attributing authorship, and in the final two chapters of the book he puts forward a much more significant hypothesis, albeit based less on stylistic features and more on a theory of logography.

To speak of Lysias’ style, or his use of narrative, argument, or characterisation, for instance, is to presuppose that we have succeeded in identifying which of the speeches are genuinely the work of Lysias. As far as individual speeches are concerned, I have suggested elsewhere that Lysias’ status as metic and his background as (arguably) a war profiteer115 makes it important at least to ask what part he played in the composition of Lys. 22, which twice makes explicit the plea to kill metic retailers in order to keep down the price of grain (Todd 1993: 320); by contrast, the praise for the rôle played by xenoi (non-Athenians) in the democratic restoration may be relevant to our interpretation of Lys.

6, Lys. 8, Lys. 9, and Lys. 20 as among the most suspect, but there are some surprises: 110 Usher & Najock’s headings are: (i) FW (frequent words), (ii) IWC (initial word classes), (iii) WC (word classes in general), (iv) FWC (final word classes), and (v) VR (vocabulary richness). 111 Usher & Najock (1982: 103–104), noting that they do record some disagreements between the two authors over their response to the last three speeches, and also (for generic reasons) to Lys. 2. They do not include Lys.
