The first sentence of Ab Urbe Condita could, of course, be interpreted just as the conventional captatio benevolentiae or words to win over the empathy of the reader to approach the work with benignitas.
Livy, Ab Urbe Condita, Tomus I (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1974), pp.
(45) Tito Livio, Ab urbe condita, 34.21 nos reporta que Caton establecio grandes impuestos a las minas de hierro y de plata en Hispania, que reportaron grandes reditos a Roma: "pacata provincia vectigalia magna instituit ex ferrariis argentariisque quibus tum institutis locupletior in dies provincia fuit".
(8) The story I tell for Los Angeles in "Ab urbe condita" focuses on the Uto-Aztecans (called Gabrielino by the Spanish and Tongva by themselves), who, as the name implies, were one migratory branch of a group that also migrated southward and ruled Mesoamerica from Tenochtitlan when Cortes arrived in 1519.
Philippides ends his volume here, adding in appendices a French text of the Tetaldi document, a Greek and Italian version of the aman-name granted by Mehmed II to Pera, the Genoese suburb of Constantinople, and a sort of official account of the fall of the two cities as presented by the Venetian Pietro Giustiniani in his Rerum Venetarum ab urbe condita ad annum MDLXXXV.
Each of the five chapters in Marchesi's book traces the contours and explores the implications of these hidden strata of the Decameron: allusions to Livy's Ab urbe condita are discovered in the plague description of the Decameron's introduction; a passage from Aristotle's Rhetoric clarifies Boccaccio's enigmatic classification of his novelle; strains of Horace's Satire 1.4 are discerned in the poetic apologia of the introduction to day 4; the lovelorn Lisabetta of 4.5 is anatomized to reveal a fascinating array of Didos (historical and poetical); beneath Calandrino's frivolous antics is disclosed a serious debate about procreation and abstention from sex rooted in the texts of Ovid, Augustine, Jerome, and Ecclesiastes.
Marchesi accosta al notorio testo di riferimento medievale, rilevato da Vittore Branca, dell'Historia langobardorum (II.4-5) di Paolo Diacono, il breve resoconto di Livio sulla peste, scoppiata negli accampamenti romani e cartaginesi durante l'assedio di Siracusa, in Ab urbe condita XXV.26.
L'argomentazione di Giannotto--in particolare l'enigmatico "ritornassesi" (forse, come suggerisce altrove Branca, legato al francese se retourner)--, la sintassi e parte del lessico contenuti nel frammento di discorso indiretto derivano da un simile contesto che si puo leggere in Ab urbe condita XXV, 16.
