Fortune de l’inscription du temple d’Isis des manuscrits épigraphiques du Quattrocento aux Antiquités de la Ville d’Andrea Fulvio (1527)
The five books of Antiquitates Vrbis of Andrea Fulvio (1527) contain 40 inscriptions, many of which were previously unknown. From what sources did he dispose to feed this new sylloge? Among these inscriptions, the text of the inscription of the temple of Isis constitutes an especially interesting case of transmission between humanists through the circulation of manuscripts and the first editions. Indeed, not really unpublished but delivered in the first editions of the Roma triumphans (1473, 1482, 1503, 1513), it appears in various forms, especially in the handwritten versions of Felice Feliciano’s sylloge. It is a Dresden manuscript containing Flavio Biondo’s Roma instaurata (after 1459), annotated by one of his sons, which brings insights into the problems that this transmission had posed until Andrea Fulvio and until the Corpus inscriptionum Latinarum.
