The article focuses on ms. 138, Biblioteca Riccardiana, Florence, a ‘zibaldone’ belonged to the humanist Cristoforo Landino (1425-1498). Particular attention is drawn to the first codicological unit, written in Landino’s hand, containing a unique textual witness of an anonymous Latin translation of Diodorus Siculus’ Bibliotheca historica; the translation is peculiar because many words and numbers are left in Greek, and the text is full of corrections and cancellations. The paper shows the outcomes of a first textual analysis of the anonymous version and discusses Landino’s possible responsibility towards the text, considering that his knowledge of Greek has always been judged elementary by scholar
