Review(s)

“The series is useful to classicists, medievalists, historians of the Western intellectual tradition, and rare book librarians. Those with an interest in the tangled histories of ancient authors will be grateful to have the CTC as their guide.” (Daniel Abosso, in Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 37.10.2018)

Summary

In this volume, the second of the Catalogus, five full-length articles devoted to Polybius, Diodorus Siculus, Zosimus, Procopius of Caesarea, and the fictitious Dares Phrygius are supplemented by addenda and corrigenda to articles previously published on Valerius Maximus, Petronius Arbiter, Martialis, and Martianus Capella. Contributors combine detailed and accurate information about manuscripts and early printed editions together with quotations of paratextual material and comprehensive overviews of the ways in which these authors were received. In doing so, they provide an essential work for those concerned with ancient historiography and the way in which the authors and their works were remembered.
