Lo scrittoio di un commentatore tardoantico: gli scholia pseudoasconiana a Cicerone Verr. II, 1

di Valentina Preterossi

In 1416 the humanist Poggio Bracciolini brought to light a series of glosses to Cicero’s Verrinae attributed to the 1st century author Asconius Pedianus. During the 19th century modern scholars proved that these rhetorical and grammatical annotations were written by an anonymous late-antique commentator, probably a 5th century grammaticus who worked from an interpolated and textually flawed copy of Cicero’s works. This fact is demonstrated by a series of textual critical annotations where the commentator seems to mention variant readings of the transmitted text.
