Apollonius’ lexicon is for us one of the most important works of Greek lexicography, for it is a key source of information on ancient understandings of Homer’s vocabulary and how Homer was read in antiquity. In addition, the lexicon preserves many fragments of earlier work, including but not limited to that of Aristarchus; for example the obscure Homerist Heliodorus9 is known primarily from Apollonius.

As a result, the scholia to a single author often appear in radically different form in different manuscripts, and frequently the divergences are so great that no reconstruction of the original is possible.

Only the first book survives in its original form, in a single fourteenthcentury manuscript. Almost all the material in this manuscript is also found, in a very similar form, in the bT scholia to Homer, showing that one of the major sources of these scholia was Porphyry’s work, which was probably systematically cut up and rearranged as scholia at a relatively late date. The later book(s) of Porphyry’s work, though lost in their original form, are therefore probably all or almost all preserved in the bT scholia (though the scholia from this source are systematically omitted from Erbse’s edition).
