<p style='text-align: justify;'>This short manuscript, produced in the very late 15th or early 16th century, contains the <i>Heroicus</i> (<i><i>On Heroes</i></i>), a dialogue between a Phoenician and a vine-tender regarding Homer's presentation of heroes and gods. It is traditionally attributed to Flavius Philostratus "the Athenian" (ca. 170-247/250 CE), a Greek sophist of the Roman imperial period, but some scholars argue that the author is actually Philostratus of Lemnos (ca. 190-ca. 230 CE) also known as Philostratus the Elder.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript was copied by Georgios Moschos, a Greek scribe who was living in Corfu in 1496, but who moved to Italy within the next few years and worked in Ferrara and Mirandola.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
