Albinovanus Pedo was a Roman poet of the Augustan age who was a close friend of Ovid. All that certainly remains of his work is a fragment of his epic poem on Germanicus' voyage in A.D.16 to the northern ocean, which is preserved in the SUASORIAE of Seneca. "Three elegies were formerly attributed to Pedo by Scaliger; two on the death of Maecenas...and one addressed to Livia to console here for the death of her son Drusus...but it is now generally agreed that they are not by Pedo. The Consolatio has been put down as late as the 15th century as the work of an Italian imitator, there being no MSS. and no trace of the poem before the publication of the editio princeps of Ovid in 1471." - EB, 11th edition. The second work contains the poem "Aetna" attributed variously to Lucilius Junior (the 11th EB thinks him the probable author), Virgil, Cornelius Severus, and Manilius, as well as "De Aetna, ad Angelum Chabrielem, liber" by Cardinal Pietro Bembo (1470-1547). Our book was edited by J. Clericus using the pseudonym "Gorallus". Binding: Hardcover. .
