This article surveys the known manuscripts of the Interpretationes Vergilianae of Tiberius Claudius Donatus and offers a new perspective on what has been deduced concerning that text’s transmission. In particular, it adds two new manuscripts to the last survey of the text (by Peter K. Marshall in 1990) and proposes a connection between a 15th-Century MS (Wellesley, Mass., Wellesley College Library, MS 7) and the lost Reichenau manuscript, which, if real, could alter scholars’ understanding of how and when this text reached the Italian humanists. It concludes with an argument in favor of a new critical edition, especially in light of so many recent discoveries.
