This is the first detailed commentary to be compiled on the fragments remaining from the plays of the Greek comic poet Alexis (c. 375-270 B.C.), who made significant contributions to a new style of comedy that came to be associated especially with Menander. The comments discuss all aspects of the textual transmission, the language, the dramatic background and the relation of the plays to their contemporary milieu. They make important additions to our understanding of fourth-century Attic Greek. The Greek text is not included.

This commentary is unique: nothing comparable on Alexis has ever been attempted

It sheds new light on the contributions made by Alexis to the development of Greek comedy

Valuable contribution to studies of the development of the Greek language
