The only Decades that circulated in the Middle Ages are the First, the Third, and the Fourth. They were available in Bamberg in the eleventh century (Reeve 1987a, 146). 6 The beginning of the Fifth Decade (Books 41–45) only reappeared in the sixteenth century. 8 The abundant research done in the past 30 years makes it necessary to update Reynold’s excellent synthesis (1983). It concerns two main domains: first, the census of Livy’s manuscripts copied from the ninth to the twelfth centuries (Munk Olsen9 1982–2009, II, 1–16 and III, 2, 88–91, with complements in Munk Olsen 1991–2007) and of inventories of medieval libraries (Munk Olsen 1982–2009, III, 1); and second, a much deeper examination of the many recentiores, whose interest had been stressed by Giuseppe Billanovich (1951 and 1981).

He wonders about the suitability of replacing it by the reconstruction of the hypothetical ancestor of the [Z] family, from nine witnesses of the fifteenth century, non-eliminable in definite portions of their text. His study of group Z, whose ancestor is an Italian-contaminated descendant of North European manuscripts (E and O), reveals its interest: many of the manuscripts that compose the group come from incunables. A descendant close to that lost ancestor (= [Z]) has indeed been used as the basis for the editio princeps (=Zr, Rome 1469 or 1470).
