title RIASSUNTO /title

L'analisi del metodo classico introdotto da Ipparco per determinare il raggio dell'epiciclo lunare basato sull'osservazione di terne di eclissi, e dei metodi e delle procedure che successivamente condussero Tolomeo alla forma definitiva del suo modello lunare, suggerisce nuove valutazioni circa la genesi e il significato della prosneusis, da sempre ritenuta un espediente del tutto insoddisfacente, e mostra i limiti del tradizionale approccio storiografico alla questione.

Affiliations: 1: Firenze We wish to thank Prof. Giulio Barsanti for his encouragement and his indispensable support. We are also grateful to Prof. Mario Rigutti for reading the manuscript and giving us useful advice.
