Anybody got a clue? > >Sincerely, > >John Schaeffer >NIU Antonius Goveanus, latinized name of Antonio de Gouveia , portuguese (Beja 1505-Torino 1566); he taught philosophy in Paris and wrote in support of Aristotle's theories his Pro Aristotele responsio adversus Petri Rami calumnias (1543); he also wrote Epigrammaton Libri Duo et Epistulae Quatuor (1549); he translated Porphiry's Isagoge and published an edition of the works by Vergil and Terence(Virgilius et Terentius pristini splendori restituti, 1541). His complete works were published in 1766 with the title Opera juridica, philologica, philosophica. I apologize for my poor translation from my source, Dizionario Enciclopedico Italiano, Roma 1956.
