“Table of Poets” (in
Early Italian Poets)
Onesto (ca. 1240-1303) was a money lender from Bologna, a friend of Cino da Pistoia
and like him a follower of Guinizelli. Dante praises his work (and quotes from one of his lost
canzoni) in De Volgari
Eloquio (I.xv.6). DGR's source text is
del Primo Secolo (II. 145).
See DGR's translation for further commentary.
