This study – the first part of which is published in the Proceedings of the International Congress Tradizione e storia dei testi classici greci e latini: metodologie, pratiche e discussioni tra antico e moderno, Naples 2023 – aims to trace the very first publishing history (since 1810) of the Ars veterinaria di Pelagonius (4th century AD). This second part specifically deals with the relationships, sometimes stormy, between Gaetano Cioni (who printed the editio princeps of the work in 1826) and Giuseppe Furlanetto, who on the basis of the suggestions of Girolamo Molin was for a long time wrongly inclined to consider the Latin text of the treatise (transmitted by cod. Florence, Biblioteca Riccardiana, 1179) a medieval translation of a Greek original (largely preserved in the Byzantine collections of hippiatric works). The paper closes with an appendix on the echoes of the debate by Giacomo Leopardi and Alessandro Manzoni, with whom Cioni was in contact.

Abstract

This study – the first part of which is published in the Proceedings of the International Congress Tradizione e storia dei testi classici greci e latini: metodologie, pratiche e discussioni tra antico e moderno, Naples 2023 – aims to trace the very first publishing history (since 1810) of the Ars veterinaria di Pelagonius (4th century AD). This second part specifically deals with the relationships, sometimes stormy, between Gaetano Cioni (who printed the editio princeps of the work in 1826) and Giuseppe Furlanetto, who on the basis of the suggestions of Girolamo Molin was for a long time wrongly inclined to consider the Latin text of the treatise (transmitted by cod. Florence, Biblioteca Riccardiana, 1179) a medieval translation of a Greek original (largely preserved in the Byzantine collections of hippiatric works). The paper closes with an appendix on the echoes of the debate by Giacomo Leopardi and Alessandro Manzoni, with whom Cioni was in contact.
