Gunther Martin and Jana Grusková, “Facing the Plague and the Goths: A New Passage from the Scythica Vindobonensia(Codex Vindobonensis hist. gr. 73 fol. 192r, lines 13–30)”

Newly deciphered lines of the palimpsest yield previously unknown information about the Gothic campaign and offer a contemporary glimpse into the catastrophic events of the mid-third century, in particular the ‘Plague of Cyprian’.
