Johann Gottfried Stallbaum
His reputation rests upon his work on Plato, of which he published two complete editions: the one (1821-1825) a revised text with critical apparatus, the other (1827-1860) containing exhaustive prolegomena and commentary written in excellent Latin, a fundamental contribution to Platonic exegesis.
A separate edition of the Parmenides (1839), with the commentary of Proclus, deserves mention. Stallbaum also edited the commentaries of Eustathius of Thessalonica on the Iliad and Odyssey, and the Grammaticae latinae institutiones of Thomas Ruddiman.
