The article deals with the issue of the relationship between Aristarchus and the Glossographers by investigating a few known cases of convergence in their respective explanation of Homeric glosses. A significant contribution comes from some D-scholia to the Iliad which are witnesses to this convergence. Such a reception can be explained if to later exegetes Aristarchus appeared not to be underrating or condemning the Glossographers’ achievements per se. Far from neglecting or despising the Glossographers, Aristarchus included, discussed and adapted their solutions to his specific critical parameters, recognizing their target as different from his own – namely, linear reading of the poem instead of textual diorthosis in the wider framework of reconstructing the Ὁμηρικόν.
