Emmanuel Miller (1812-1886) published Mélanges de Littérature Grecque, perhaps his most important work, in 1867. The volume is a collection of Greek lexicographical texts, proverbs and hymns. It includes large sections of the Etymologicum Genuinum, a ninth-century lexical encyclopaedia compiled in Constantinople under the supervision of Photius. The text is the recension found in the tenth-century manuscript Laurent. S. Marci 304 (B). The volume includes Miller's collation of B against Gaisford's 1848 edition of the Etymologicum Magnum, revealing the strong textual consanguinity between the two lexicons. The volume includes shorter texts including excerpts from the Etymologicum Parvum; compilations of proverbs from authors such as Zenobius, Didymus of Alexandria, and Aristophanes of Byzantium; and a selection of Orphic hymns. Miller made many of these texts available the first time, opening the way for critical study, and the volume made an important contribution to the understanding of Byzantine scholarship.
