« Ostie et ostium chez Isidore de Séville : Festus, Ps.-Aurélius Victor, Servius auctus et quelques autres »

Abstract : Study of three passages of the Etymologies of Isidore of Seville dedicated to Ostia and ostium: Etym. XIV, 8, 43; XV, 1, 56; XV, 7, 4. For Isidore, Ostia-harbour of Latium, ostium-entrance of a house and ostium-mouth of a river are only three different meanings for the same word: he thus uses the same terms, extracted from the same sources, to define Ostia and ostium. New sources are discovered here: Ps.-Aurelius Victor, Vir. ill. 5 and Festus 304 L for Etym. XV, 1, 56, and Gregory the Great, In Hiez. II, 5, 11 for Etym. XV, 7, 4. (A note indicates also that Ps.-Aurelius Victor is also the source of Etym. XV, 3, 6.) Finally, this article tries to know if in Etym. XIV, 8, 43 Servius auctus is Isidore's source or if it is the opposite: with much caution, I am inclined to favour the first hypothesis.
