A.2. Das Haupt des Appius

Francis X. Ryan

Abstract


It is shown that the attestation of the principate of Ap. Claudius Pulcher (Cos. 143) is due to the alchemistic procedure of ancient writers. Other ostensible facts about Appius are also examined: a supposed testimonium for his censorship, his supposedly fixed date of death, and his supposed augurate.
