Bleckmann on Apollonius’ Vita

Bruno Bleckmann reconsiders Van Hoof and Van Nuffelen’s rejection of the translation of the Vita Apollonii (Ep. 8.3.1) for being a spurium, referring, among others, to Mülke 2008, 236-43, and Köhler 2014.

The Latest on the Life of Apollonius

In their new Fragmentary Latin Histories of Late Antiquity (AD 300-620): Edition, Translation and Commentary, Cambridge: CUP, 2020, in a chapter on Nicomachus Flavianus (pp. 36-58), on pp. 50-53, Lieve Van Hoof and Peter Van Nuffelen argue that the supposed Latin Life of Apollonius is a spurium, concluding that it must have been a Greek manuscript that Sidonius copied.
