Vita Viri Clarissimi et Famosissimi Kyriaci Anconitani: Transactions, APS (vol. 86, part 4)
Ciriaco di Filippo de’ Pizzicolli (b. 1391) was the most prolific recorder of Greek & Roman antiquities, particularly inscriptions, in the 15th cent.; he is entitled to be called the founding father of modern classical archaeology. Of his early life our knowledge rests mostly on the materials for a “Vita” put together by his friend Francesco Scalamonti, which largely reproduces Ciriaco’s own records & carries his biography down to 1435. This “Vita” survives in a single manuscript published in 1792. The editors have re-edited Scalamonti’s “Vita” from the original mss. with a translation. Also includes an intro. to the text & its previous pub., its authorship, its sources, & its likely date of composition. Concludes with a chronology of the events narrated in the “Vita.”
