Chapter Summary

Work on the Budé-edition of the HA is proceeding slowly but steadily. The five volumes that have been published so far cover 219 of the 550 pages in the Teubner-edition, which amounts to 40 per cent of the complete text. The second half of the HA, which means the part that starts with the Life of Macrinus, is far better disclosed than the first. Of the first half we have only the Lives of Hadrian, Aelius and Antoninus Pius of the second half we have the Lives of Macrinus, Diadumenus and Heliogabalus and the Lives of Aurelian and Tacitus. In his discussion of the lacuna Ratti (R.) puts forward some new and highly interesting arguments for the thesis that the lacuna is the result of a deliberate omission on the part of the author. He points out that Philippus' interdiction of male prostitution is mentioned twice in earlier Lives.
