On Sappho 1 Voigt and the Kypris Poem


In this paper I review the various possible reconstructions for fr. 1. 20 Voigt and the Kypris poem and argue that there are analogies for complete structures between the two poems. Discussing the various proposed reconstructions, I survey the formal characteristics of the Lesbian verb system. Against this background, I suggest a new restoration at the end of verse 2 in the Kypris Poem in the light of a reading that has been proposed for fr. 1. 20 Voigt.
