Description

The anonymous Lezione del coito deals with the notion of coitus drawing not only from Aristotle, but from Galen and Hippocrates as well. The author refers to Aristotelian works such as On generation of animals, On the soul, Problems. The text is copied in the ms. Milan, BAmbr, G 44 inf. by the same hand which copies the section of commentary on Aristotle's Rhetoric, book 2 (cf. relevant record: Aristotile dello amore nel secondo libro della Rethorica).
