The ms. London, British Library, Add 10081 includes, as preface to the six Terentian comedies, a curious text by Andrea Biglia (c. 1394-1435) in which the humanist makes the playwright speak for himself claiming a Roman ancestry and, therefore, denying his African provenance believed to be so since Antiquity. Biglia’s text is edited here for the first time in the two versions found in the London ms.: «Argumentum Terentii» and «Argumentum de origine Terentii». Particular consideration is given to its possible connexion with the controversy around the identity of Terence, which had arisen some decades earlier following the diffusion of Petrarch’s Vita Terrentii.
