Abstract

The paper describes the ten primary witnesses of the text of Xenophon’s Oeconomicus and undertakes the study of their relationships. The affinity between the Madrid codex RAH 9/2170 and the Laur. plut. 55.21 is evident: both were copied in northern Italy from the lost codex belonging to Guarino Veronese. Equally clear is the affinity between the codices Guelf. 71.19 and Vat. Reg. gr. 96; for these two manuscripts the hypothesis of a Peloponnesian origin is raised here. Since the remaining six primary witnesses are certainly Constantinopolitans, it seems possible to distinguish a stirps Italica, a stirps Peloponnesiaca and a stirps Constantinopolitana. All ten witnesses descend from a medieval archetype.
