Abstract

The paper suggests that the anonymous translation of Xenophon's Oeconomicus preserved in the ms Vat. lat. 1069 could be that by Giovanni Aurispa, until now considered as lost. The paper investigates the Greek source of this humanistic translation. Finally, it analyses the entries for Xenophon's Oeconomicus in the inventory of Aurispa's books compiled in 1459 and proposes the identification of item 450 with the manuscript Modena, Biblioteca Estense Universitaria, alpha.w.9.11.
