Abstract

As is well known, Faernus’ fable Iuppiter, et Minerva (Fabulae centum, 2) has an ancient model: Phaedr. 3, 17. This short article tries to demonstrate that Faernus did not read the fable in a printed edition of Niccolò Perotti’s Cornu copiae, as is commonly believed, but in a ms. of Phaedrus’ Fables (precisely a ms. of the λ branch of the transmission). The article also contains some philological and exegetical observations on the text of Faernus’ fable. Finally, it points out an unnoticed echo of Phaedr. 3, 17 in Politian’s Stanze per la giostra.
