  1. Andrew Barker (2009). Musical Theory and Philosophy: The Case of Archestratus. Phronesis 54 (4):390-422.
    Little is known about the harmonic theorist Archestratus (probably early 3rd century BC). Our only substantial information comes from Porphyry, who quotes a brief comment by a certain Didymus on his epistemological stance, and seeks to justify it through reflection on a rather startling technical doctrine which Archestratus propounded; and from Philodemus, who comments scathingly on his view of the relation between harmonic theory and philosophy. Neither passage is easy to interpret; this paper tries to make sense of them, and (...)

  2. Andrew Barker (2009). Ptolemy and the Meta-Helikôn. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 40 (4):344-351.
    In his Harmonics, Ptolemy constructs a complex set of theoretically ‘correct’ forms of musical scale, represented as sequences of ratios, on the basis of mathematical principles and reasoning. But he insists that their credentials will not have been established until they have been submitted to the judgement of the ear. They cannot be audibly instantiated with the necessary accuracy without the help of specially designed instruments, which Ptolemy describes in detail, discussing the uses to which each can be put and (...)

  11. Andrew Barker (1994). An Oxyrhynchus Fragment on Harmonic Theory. Classical Quarterly 44 (01):75-.
    The tattered remains of a few paragraphs of a work on harmonic theory were published in 1986 as P. Oxy. LIII.3706, with a careful commentary by M. W. Haslam. There are six fragments. Four of them are too small for any substantial sense to be recovered; and while fr. 2 and the second column of fr. 1 allow us to pick out significant words and phrases here and there, the remnants of these columns are very narrow, and the line of (...)

  18. Andrew Barker (1987). Text and Sense at Philebus 56A. Classical Quarterly 37 (01):103-.
    Editors and translators have found this paragraph troublesome. Though its general tenor is fairly clear it is not easy to interpret in detail, and the task is complicated by three points of uncertainty about the text, Bury conjectured that in 5 is misplaced, and should stand in 3 after . After in 5, the second hand of Ven. 189 adds modern editors have often accepted this addition, In 6, has been thought incomprehensible: Badham offered instead, and this suggestion too has (...)

  24. Andrew Barker (1982). Aristides Quintilianus and Constructions in Early Music Theory. Classical Quarterly 32 (01):184-.
    Aristides Quintilianus' dates are not known, but he can hardly be earlier than the first century A.D. or later than the third. Several passages in the early pages of his de Musica1 purport to record facts about the practice of much older theorists, in contexts which make it clear that his references are to the period before Aristoxenus. Since our knowledge of music theory in that period is extremely sketchy, it is obviously worth trying to assess the reliability of Aristides' (...)

  25. Andrew Barker (1982). The Innovations Of Lysander The Kitharist. Classical Quarterly 32 (02):266-.
    Since Epigonus spent most of his life in Sicyon, it seems likely that Lysander was himself one of the associates of Epigonus that the passage mentions. This would place him in the latter part of the sixth century. But we have no further information about Lysander, and nothing of what is known of Epigonus is any help in the interpretation of the present account. Some innovations in kithara-playing are being credited to Lysander, but what they are is far from clear.
