The Mythologiarum libri (or Mythologiae) is a prosimetrical work in three books in which the mythographer Fulgentius tells fifty Greek myths (it is possible that the book divisions are not original). Similarities between this text and the Vatican Mythographers suggest a common source, but a direct connection between them seems unlikely. The exposition of each myth is followed by an allegorical reading that makes great use of paretymologies to explain the hidden relationships between words and things. The Mythologiae were extremely important for transmitting Greek myths to the Middle Ages during a time when knowledge of the Greek language had been lost. The tradition is based on about ten principle manuscripts, divided into two families; moreover, secondary manuscripts also contribute to the reconstructed text. [M. Manca; tr. C. L. Caterine].
