Comment Kaldellis (2015: 77-78): "This is Tzetzes’ infamous farewell to Thucydides, probably the most hostile verdict on him ever expressed by a classical scholar. (...) Tzetzes repeats some of his accusations from scholion 32 (see above)" (i.e. on f. 184v) "and echoes the criticisms of Thucydides made by Dionysios of Halikarnassos."
