See Purcell 1990, 58.
96.
Lefkowitz 1981, 113-14, is skeptical not just of Alciphron, but the whole tradition of Menander, which other scholars, however, take seriously: see, e.g., Blanchard 1983, 407.
97.
Gomme and Sandbach 1973, 1-2; see also 470 on the "non-Attic first performance" of some plays. For an account of theaters and productions in the demes: Pickard-Cambridge 1968, 42-52.
98.
Diog. Laer. II.7 tells how Anaxagoras, when asked, "Have you no concern for your native land (τη + ̑ς πατρίδος)?" answered yes while pointing into the sky; Schneider 1967, 61, takes the whole as "eine hellenistische Anekdote."
