M.L. West, review of Victor J. Matthews, Panyassis of Halikarnassos: Text and Commentary
(Leiden: E.J. Brill, 1974), in Classical Philology
71.2 (April, 1976) 172-174 (at 174):
Fragment 26: the word πέμματα already occurs in Solon frag. 38.3. There is
no reason why Panyassis, any more than Herodotus, should have "borrowed"
the word from Stesichoros. I can use the word "handbag" without having borrowed
it from Oscar Wilde.
Fragment 28: Matthews suggests πῶς δὲ πορευθῇς, "how are you to cross?": Belfast Greek.
Cruel. Matthews studied under George Huxley at Queen's University Belfast.
