The anonymous tale of Alexander and Semiramis harks back to a Persian-Ottoman version of Turandot material reworked according to the conventions of late Byzantine literary romance. Both versions are critically annotated in this edition, which also provides a detailed introduction about the origin of the narrative material, its place in fourteenth-century Byzantine literary history, and the linguistic analysis of the text. A word index and a translation complete the edition.
Ulrich Moennig is Visiting Professor of modern Greek philology at the University of Cyprus.
