After some remarks on the tradition of Romulus, a collection of prose fables widespread in the Middle Ages and mostly based on Phaedrus’ fabulae, this paper offers some preliminary results toward a new critical edition of recensio vetus, one of the families this corpus is generally divised, focusing on philological and linguistical problems raised in fables VIII, XV and LXV, according to the numeration proposed by the previous editor Georg Thiele (Heidelberg 1910). Analysis are conducted in order to highlight peculiar aspects of this collection, as well as similarities and differences that emerge through comparison with the other two Romulean recensiones – known as Gallicana and Wissemburgensis – and with the respective Phaedrian models.

Abstract

After some remarks on the tradition of Romulus, a collection of prose fables widespread in the Middle Ages and mostly based on Phaedrus’ fabulae, this paper offers some preliminary results toward a new critical edition of recensio vetus, one of the families this corpus is generally divised, focusing on philological and linguistical problems raised in fables VIII, XV and LXV, according to the numeration proposed by the previous editor Georg Thiele (Heidelberg 1910). Analysis are conducted in order to highlight peculiar aspects of this collection, as well as similarities and differences that emerge through comparison with the other two Romulean recensiones – known as Gallicana and Wissemburgensis – and with the respective Phaedrian models.
