Western Medieval Manuscripts : Scholia on Oppian's Halieutica

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> Manuscript Kk.5.8 contains a collection of <i> Scholia on Oppian's<i> Halieutica</i></i> ("On fishing"), a didactic poem in hexameter on sea-creatures and fishing from the 2nd century CE, followed by an anonymous grammatical work on accents attributed to Theodosius of Alexandria. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The codex was probably copied in France, as the watermarks and the fact that it was owned by Jean-Baptiste Hautin suggest. The text was coped by a scribe who signed the copy of the last text in November 1592; although the colophon refers explicitly only to this text, since the rest of the manuscript has been written by the same scribe on the same kind of paper, the same period can be hypothesised for the copy af the whole manuscript. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Manuscript Kk.5.6 is currently bound as the third part of a single volume with three other manuscripts, Kk.5.6, 7 and 9.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
