Summary
Valerius Maximus' nine books of Factorum et dictorum memorabilium--memorable deeds and sayings--"containing about a thousand historical anecdotes exemplifying virtues and vices...particularly suitable for younger students at the beginning of the Latin curriculum, as his collection provided them with a comprehensive view of general history, as well as illustrations of virtuous precepts...."; see K.A.E. Enenkel, Transformations of the classics via early modern commentaries (Leiden: Koninklijke Brill, c2014), pages 154-155. See also M. Crab, "Theophilus Chalcondyles' commentary on Valerius Maximus (1508)," in Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance 75.2 (2013), 291-318
