Velleius Paterculus

Velleius Paterculus (c. 20 BC – after 30 AD).

“In 1515, the manuscript of Velleius Paterculus’ Roman History was discovered in the abbey of Murbach in the Alsace by a humanist scholar who called himself Beatus Rhenanus but whose real name was Bilde von Rheinau (1485-1547). Five years later, he published the text. Although the original manuscript is now lost, we know that it was badly written and contained many errors.” [1]
