Ein Zitat von Nikephoros Blemmydes aus dem Cod. misc. gr. 2773 der Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Darmstadt

Stefano Valente


The MS. Darmstadt, Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek, misc. gr. 2773 (14th century) preserves a short quotation from Nikephoros Blemmydes which has usually been taken as not genuine. In this paper, the source of the quotation is identified as coming from the Epitome physica, Chapter 17 concerning the doctrine of winds. The wind-rose that follows the quotation comes from the same chapter as well.
