not yet rated|write a review
Few secular works of Antiquity were as popular in the Middle Ages as Vegetius' Epitoma, the broadest ancient manual of Roman warfare. This edition is the first to be based on a comprehensive investigation of over 200 surviving manuscripts. The apparatus gives a full account of the readingsthat medieval scribes inherited from Antiquity. It also includes cross-references and brief explanations of some choices, and M. R. Reeve takes trouble to identify the earliest occurrences of worthwhile conjecture. There is a wide-ranging introduction in English.
