Summary

Classical scholar Robinson Ellis (1834-1913) studied at Balliol College, Oxford, under Benjamin Jowett, before becoming a Fellow of Trinity and, in 1893, Corpus Professor of Latin. His 1876 Commentary on Catullus (also reissued in this series) publicised the Codex Oxoniensis but overlooked its significance and was criticised by other scholars in the field. Nevertheless, his commentaries became standard texts, including this 1881 publication of Ovid's Ibis. A vitriolic invective poem, written in exile, aimed at an enemy whose identity remains unclear, and invoking Callimachus' lost poem of the same name, it is probably Ovid's least-known work. This edition, including text, scholia, and Ellis's prolegomena and critical apparatus, illuminates nineteenth-century traditions of classical scholarship.
