Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Leiden, Universiteitsbibl., Voss. misc. 13 is a collection of Greek and Latin texts and notes, mostly written by Isaac Vossius. Object of this paper are three Greek texts in verse. On f. 4, now partially excised, the missing portion can be reconstructed as containing a copy of an antique inscription, whose ultimate source is Boccaccio’s Zibaldone: Vossius had the text from Lucas Langermannus, who worked in Florence between 1651 and 1654. Still extant in the surviving portion of f. 4, few lines are identified as Menander fr. 65 K-A, excerpted from Stephanus Byzantius’ Ethnika. On f. 8r Vossius, when he was in Rome in 1642, copied an epigram from a Farnese MS, then in Farnese Palace in Rome, before the moving of the collection to Parma: this MS is now identified as Naples, Bibl. Naz., II C 37.
