Description Scholia to works dealing with mythology contain interesting information on various versions of the myth and their tradition; apart from that, they show the ways of how ancient critics viewed particular myths. On scholia to the epic work by Apollonius of Rhodes, whose epic is the only preserved representative from the Hellenic period, it was shown what paradigms of thoughts we can find in the approach towards the ancient myth. Consequently, they were subject to comparison with traditional ancient interpretation methods of myth.
