Il codice Vatic. Borg. lat. 413 e il Dialogus de oratoribus di Tacito

Domenico Bo


This manuscript was copied at Naples in XVth century by Tideo Acciarini from an apograph descending from Leid. Perizon. XVIII Q. 21 at a time when this ms. had not even the form it has today. Acciarini gave no personal contribution to the text he transcribed; the manuscript is nevertheless of great importance for the understanding, appreciation and use of its source, as some examples from the text of Dialogus testify.
