Résumé :

In the 1540s, in order to prepare a new edition of Dioscorides’s De materia medica, Angelo Vergecio annotated an Aldine Press version (French National Library, suppl. gr. 1098) using a manuscript procured by François Rabelais: this is the current ms. R.III.3 from El Escorial, a Greek Dioscorides from the eleventh century. A few years later, this manuscript found its way to Rome, among the Spanish Hellenists, with whom Rabelais may have been in contact during his last stay in that city.
