Pearson offers further evidence of Aristoxenian theory in extracts from later Greek musical writers and from the important papyrus fragment Oxyrhynchus Papyri 2687, which is also presented here with translation and commentary. Pearson demonstrates that Aristoxenus explains rhythm in terms that would be acceptable to musicians today, that he does not regard rhythm as purely quantitative, and that rhythm as he understood it can be found in lyric poetry of the fifth century.
