Mείναντα κενεόν: un locus criticus e una citazione omerica in una lettera di Demetrio Calcondila a Marco Musuro

Gianmario Cattaneo


The author demonstrates that a passage of a Greek letter written by Demetrius Chalcondylas to the famous scholar and editor Marcus Musurus, which was considered corrupted by the editor, is actually genuine, and it contains an allusion to Homer, Iliad, 2.298. Analysing the manuscript which preserves this letter (Par. gr. 2966), he restores the correct reading, and explains the meaning of the sentence in this context.



Homer, Marcus Musurus, Demetrius Chalcondylas
