Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ... VI COMPOUND AND MIXED METERS It is beyond the scope of this volume to set forth in detail a complete system of Greek metric; but some application of the foregoing principles to the explanation of specific meters may fairly be demanded. The so-called dactylo-epitritic and logacedic meters are so common, and have been so much the subjects of controversy, that no one who writes on metric can ignore the problems they offer, whether he believes himself to have completely solved their riddles or not. We will consider the two briefly in the order named. Perhaps the best approach to the former is by way of Blass's view, which rests on a portion of the ancient tradition. His view was first published in Fleckeisen's Jahrb. for 1886 (pp. 455 ff.), and is repeated in the preface to his Bacchylides (pp. xxix ff.). I will first summarize his argument, urging the reader to test my summary by turning to Blass's own pages in one volume or the other. The name dactylo-epitritic is not ancient, but modern, as also the current description of this meter. In the scholia to Pindar verses of this sort are called Sifierpa (rpifierpa) irpoaoSuiKd, and according to Blass it is the invariable teaching of the ancients (constans veterum doctrina) that the feet are not dactyls or anapaests, but choriambs and ionics; the dimeter of the scholia is _ w w _ I DEGREES w, choriambus and ionic a minore. Indications of this view are to be found even in Aristophanes and Plato. In the Clouds, Sokrates, who professes amongst other arts that of rhythm, T}jv irepl pvOficov, is asked by Strepsiades, what is the use of a knowledge of rhythm, and replies, irpunov fiev elvcu KofiyJrbv ev crvvovaicf hratovff oiroios e'cra r&v pvOucov Kara B
