Contributi del Tolet. 97-12 alla costituzione del testo di Celso

Umberto Capitani


The manuscript Toletanus 97-12 (T) contributes very significantly to the constitution of the text of Celsus’ De Medicina in two wide sections of Book IV, based only on one branch of the tradition represented by the mss. Laurent. 73.1 (F) and Vatic. 5951 (R ). This paper presents an analysis of several passages, in which T offers a text auctus or potior as compared to VF.
