Abstract: In the last years of his life, the Bolognese humanist Romulus Amasaeus (1489-1552) translated Polybius’ description (X.2-20) of the conquering of Nova Carthago by Scipio. This hitherto unpublished translation survives in two manuscripts, now in the libraries of the Vatican and Évora. The relationship between both witnesses can be assessed thanks to the Amaseiana that are conserved at the Bibliotheca Ambrosiana.
