Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (3):733-750 (2020)

The emigrant Byzantine humanist Theodorus Gaza is well known as a teacher of Greek in various Italian cities, as a copyist of Greek manuscripts, and as a translator of Greek philosophical works into Latin. His undertakings as a translator of Latin works into Greek, among which his version of Cicero’s De senectute deserves mention, have gone relatively unnoticed. In this article we rediscover a largely forgotten translation of Cic. Fam. 1.1, despite it having been printed independently twice and having been included as an example of translation in the oft reprinted manual of rhetorical exercises, Elementa rhetoricae, by the Lutheran Joachim Camerarius.
