1 ARCHAIC AND CLASSICAL POETRY This category includes the most famous and most often cited scholia. By far the most important are the Homer scholia, but those on Pindar and the Attic dramatists are also significant. 1 Homer Ancient scholarship on Homer was extensive and of high quality, for the best scholars of antiquity devoted much of their time and energy to the Homeric poems. Work on Homer that could be described as scholarship goes back at least to the classical period and probably to the sixth century bc, and editing the text of Homer was one of the main tasks of the first Alexandrian scholars.

The body of surviving scholia is enormous; often the scholia on a literary work fill more volumes than the work itself. Much of this material is late, and it is not always easy to distinguish the ancient elements in the mixture. Modern editors often deal with this problem by marking individual scholia with signs to indicate their origins or by editing only a portion of the surviving scholia, such as the old scholia, the metrical scholia, the scholia from certain manuscripts, or the marginal scholia (as opposed to interlinear glosses).
