Per il testo degli scritti filosofici di Apuleio

The aim of this paper is to cast new light on the textual constitution of some passages of Apuleius’ Opuscula philosophica. A new edition of this text has been recently published by G. Magnaldi for the Scriptorum classicorum bibliotheca Oxoniensis (2019). In the present paper I discuss about 40 passages, for the most of which I propose a new conjecture (my knowledge of the readings of the manuscripts is based only on the reports of the existent editions). For istance: De deo S.3, 9 instead of disputatione read depravatione; De deo S.13, 4 sed differunt ab his passione should be deleted; De Plat. 1, 3, 6 ad should be deleted; De Plat. 1, 15, 4 add ne <ocius> esculenta; De Plat. 1, 16, 1 instead of ad celeritatem facilius se movendi read ad facilitatem celerius se movendi; De Plat. 2, 12, 1 extraria should be deleted; De Plat. 2, 22, 7 read adflictatio eo quod, si; De mu. 10, 2 read est <ventus> nisi; De mu. 13, 4 add vero <vocant> ἀπό; De mu. 17, 7 read inferiores quo<s>que; De mu. 23, 3 read torrentium viscerum; De mu. 25, 1 add et <propterea> poetarum; De mu. 38, 3 instead of suadeat read praesideat.
