"Perhaps all we have a right to expect from a conscientious editor is a well-written rehash of what others have already said. But this is not all that we are here given...[Professor] Battestin can repeatedly correct the record by drawing upon the work of modern scholars... His commentary, which he supplies as notes to the text, necessarily tells us much that is well known to the specialist, but often corrects what previous editors have said and not infrequently clarifies what has never before been annotated... It is surprising that so much fresh information has been assembled for a book as well known as this."
