Heyne’s work on Apollodorus has the same good and bad points as his other monumental commentaries, such as those on Virgil and Homer.

Abstract

Heyne’s work on Apollodorus has the same good and bad points as his other monumental commentaries, such as those on Virgil and Homer. In particular, the ‘comparative’ intentions of the introduction were ignored in the minutiae of gathering sources. In short, it is a commentary poised between 17th-18th century erudition and 19th-century philological precision, to whose levels of exactness it never arrived.
