‘Dans les pierres, il ne peut y avoir de fiction’ ?


Rodrigo Caro (1573-1647) has long been considered an unreliable witness of the epigraphic tradition, first and foremost by E. Hübner (CIL II). This article reconsiders his role in the transmission of the Conventus Hispalensis' falsae vel incertae, after a careful analysis of Caro's Antigüedades de Sevilla (1634). Within this work, the Sevillian humanist overall appears to be scrupulous: it is only his duty to superior interests, such as those of the archbishopric of Seville, which forces him (as in his defense of the pseudo-Dexter) to reluctantly retain certain falsae included in the Antigüedades.
