Thread: Notes on Simonides publication lists

  1. Default Notes on Simonides publication lists

    Sister thread

    lists of Simonides library and document sources around the wor
    Afawk, there are three major lists of Simonides publications.

    I'll have to check if there is any list in the 1859 bio.
    Also the Gennadius library list might be helpful for cross-referencing.

    Also helpful would be any indication if the item exists today, and
    special notes about the item, and if there is suspicion that it never existed.

    2) It seems that this is known as Voutyras 1889
    Written about in Russian and Italian, editions needed?
    We can cross-ref to the section of PBF about Luciano Canfora and Igor P. Medvedev (1999)
    We can especially see if it hints at Simonides after 1864 and the Russian experiences reported through Tregelles.

    Aretemidorous and later years

    Anna MykoniatiBiographische Bemerkungen zu Konstantinos Simonides*

    13 The list of publications in Voutyras 1889 was written by Simonides himself.
    It is to be found as an appendix to the books which he published in London in 1864 and 1865. Between 1842 and 1865, 45 publications are mentioned. Some are nowadays considered as missing, others were perhaps press articles, which were probably in their own right as tracts.
    4) Anna Mykoniati in paper in 2017 book

    Die getäuschte Wissenschaft: Ein Genie betrügt Europa (2017)

    Especially interesting from the list of books are:
    (we can search the Greek names later)

    6. "Circumstances of Lycians and Caricatures". In Smyrna, in 1843.

    This would likely be the same publisher as the Epistle of Barnabas.
    14. "A catalog of the Library of Mount Sinai, and of Saint Savva [Mar Saba Monastery between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea] and of King Paul [?]." In Constantinople in 1850.

    Simonides mentioned this catalog in the publication controversies, but did not indicate that it was published. The fact that he knew there was no ancient catalog was remarkable. It is possible that he feigned having published these catalogs as an extra support. If it exists today, or is mentioned by a third party, it would be an amazing evidence.
    21. "Student [studious/study-related] Memorandum concerning the Eighteen apographs (copies) of the Apostolic Father Hermas". In Moscow in 1853.

    This would be important in establishing the relationship between the Simonides Hermas and his earlier Hermas in Sinaiticus. And the "coincidencees" with Hermas (noted by Farrer) and Barnabas are remarkable. However, here we have the same caution as above, Simonides might have been enhancing the background.
    36. "Letter concerning a Thesis of Hieroglyphics". In London, 1860.

    There is material about the hieroglyphics in the Mayer papyri and in the Periplus of Hennon. Is there a direct publication?


    MISSING? - at least in Anna's list this seems to belong:

    Shepherd of Hermas
    1st edition was published in 1855 in Leipzig by Anger & Dindorf

    And possibly the later edition.

    (1859) Ante-Nicene Fathers
    "the missing Greek conclusion, published by Simoindes and republished by Draeseke"
    The Ante-Nicene Fathers
    When and where was this published by Simonides? And does it exist today in either or both forms?
    And what about Uranios itself? The only listing is:

    32. "Concerning the authenticity of Uranius’First Dissertation, in German". In Moscow in 1856.
    Then we expound a bit more on:

    The Mayer papyri book (Anna has Mauer(?) Codex) has the title:

    1861, English, Book, Illustrated edition:
    Fac-similes of certain portions of the Gospel of St. Matthew, and of the Epistles of Ss. James & Jude : written on papyrus in the first century, and preserved in the Egyptian museum of Joseph Mayer ... Liverpool. With a portrait of St. Matthew, from a fresco painting at Mount Athos. Edited and illustrated with notes and historical and literary prolegomena, containing confirmatory fac-similes of the same portions of Holy Scripture from papyri and parchment mss. in the monasteries of Mount Athos, of St. Catherine on Mount Sinai, of St. Sabba in Palestine, and other sources. / By Constanine Simonides.

    The url is to the picture of Matthew. The pictures of this nature are discussed in the discussion of ms. 2427 Archaic Mark.

    Luciano Canfora discussion of the Artemidorus Papyri should be checked, too.

    This is planned to cross-ref with that page about the pics on the PBF.

    Note that the latest remains 1864, even though Simonides is reported in St. Petersburg working in the Russian historical archives later in the 1860s and lived till 1890.


    12 The genuine or fake manuscripts sold by Simonides in Europe are not cataloged. There are those in
    the National Library (Athens),
    the British Library (London),
    the Bodleian Library (Oxford),
    the Austrian National Library (Vienna)
    in the Bibliotheque de Chatres (France),
    the City Museum (Liverpool) and seemingly also in other collections.
    Gennadius (Gennadeion) in Athens has a fine collection referenced in the Pasquale Massimo Pinto writings.
    University of Thessalonika supplied the very critical Epistle of Barnabas

    In Germany, Leipzig University might especially help with the Hermas editions, and they have the Codex Friderico-Augustanus. THe Sinaiticus fragments in St. Petersburg and Sinai are also very important.

    The 1819 likely needs correction.
