Abstract

The final page of the Palatinus Graecus 116 contains four Byzantine riddles. Three are known from other sources as well: they are Milovanović 110 (Θάλασσαν οἰκῶ καὶ βροτοῖς βρῶσις πέλω), 44 (Ἔζων πότ’ ἔζων πλὴν δίχα παντὸς λόγου) and 108 (Ζῷόν τι μικρόν εἰμι τῶν οὐ βρωσίμων). But the incipit of the fourth one (Ἔχεις με καὶ φέρεις με καὶ σύνειμί σοι) has no parallel in the Greek poems known to date. The transcription of the text of this last, unedited riddle – and the discovery of its solution – will be the main topic of this article.
