There are of course some questions of interpretation for which authorship matters a great deal, either throughout the corpus or in relation to particular speeches. To speak of Lysias’ style, or his use of narrative, argument, or characterisation, for instance, is to presuppose that we have succeeded in identifying which of the speeches are genuinely the work of Lysias. As far as individual speeches are concerned, I have suggested elsewhere that Lysias’ status as metic and his background as (arguably) a war profiteer115 makes it important at least to ask what part he played in the composition of Lys.
