Angelus Sabinus’ paternity of the Odyssey in epistolary form (Odyssea decurtata) preserved in ms. Diez. B. Sant. 41 in Berlin is confirmed by Angelus himself, who, in his poem in praise of pope Pius II (Epaeneticum) claims to have composed in his youth, under the pontificate of Callistus III (1455-1458), verses about Ulysses, the Naritius dux. The evidence that Angelus Sabinus is the author of the Odyssea decurtata may also shed new light on the vexata quaestio of the authorship of the three epistles composed in response to three of Ovid’s Heroides, generally ascribed to Angelus, but newly attributed by Häuptli, the latest editor of the Ovidiana, to the ancient poet Sabinus, Ovid’s contemporary and friend. The essay also debates the question of the identity of Fatius, scriptor of the ms.
