I was trying to find some text of the Chrysopoeia of Cleopatra, which is contained in the Codex Marcianus Graecus 299 in the Biblioteca Marciana, Venice. I seem to remember there is a French translation in Bethollet but cannot now find it. Does anyone know where I can find the text in a modern European language ? I seem to remember it is a short piece.
Yes this is the famous diagram. Unfortunately, my memory must be mistaken as I had thought there was an actual text to go with this figure. I just checked Jack Lindsay's book and he clearly states "the single page called her Goldmaking".
