The present paper deals with a few specific issues from a limited number of fragments, such as the nature and placing of some lyric and epic fragments from various poets: Simonides (PMG 564), Stesichorus (FF 1, 3, 4, 98, 171, 281-282 Finglass), two Hesiodic fragments (FF 192-193 M-W). The paper also deals with a few poetic and prose testimonia on the Theban epics, among which some papyrus fragments in Boeotian dialect attributed to Corinna. In the last section, I deal with the attribution of an epic text, PIbscher col. I, and with the broader issue relating to the poor reception and transmission of epic poetry other than Homeric, to be contrasted with the steady circulation attested for the poems attributed to Hesiod throughout classical antiquity.
