    "To sum up, this set of volumes are of utmost relevance to those scholars interested in the transmission of Victorinus’ commentary on Cicero’s De inuentione, as well as to those readers aiming to assess the text of Riesenweber’s ‘Editio Teubneriana’. The general public will also appreciate the pages in volume I devoted to Victorinus’ life and works. Our best compliments to the author for this highly scholarly and erudite work, which is a great step forward in its field."
