This translation and commentary aims to make the ancient play accessible not only to Greek scholars, but also to non-specialists. It provides a fuller commentary than those of both Dale and Conacher. The translation follows the line numbering of the Greek text as closely as possible, allowing Greek specialists easy comparison between the translation and original.
