Résumé :

Abstract The aim of this paper is to offer a complete survey of Planudes’s moralising corrections in his epigrammatic anthology, as these can be reconstructed through a comparison between Pl and the other testimonies (i. e. P and the Syllogae Minores). On the one hand, this analysis will confirm the inconsistency of the monk in bowdlerising the texts, often remarked by scholars; on the other, it will clarify that corrections intended to make a text morally acceptable are only occasional, and often ex-tempore. The Appendix discusses a further case of possible bowdlerization by Planudes in the Sylloge Laurentiana, composed about twenty years before his major anthology.
