On the ascription to Riessinger at Rome, see BMC IV ix-x. On J.L. Sharpe's view that this should be dated about 1466-67 see D.E. Rhodes in The Library, 6th series, 5 (1983), pp. 68-71, where a date of not after 1467 is suggested. Dated not after 1470 in Goff. GW catalogues the Aristeas as an independent edition, assigning to Riessinger at Naples about 1473-74. See also P. Needham in La Bibliofilia 116 (2014) who shows that Riessinger used the edition of Sweynheym and Pannartz of 1468 as exemplar and therefore dates this work to c. (not after) 1470. (ISTC)
