The first Latin translation of the De generatione et corruptione has been edited anonymously. The presence of two versions within the manuscript tradition of this text is clearly attested in the critical apparatus of the edition. Recent research, however, has demonstrated that both versions stem from the same translator, i.e. Burgundio of Pisa. Moreover, the translator's Greek model has been identified in the present-day manuscript Laurentianus gr. 87.7.
