Cartari's Imagini and conti's Mythologiae were probably the most important works of mythological commentary published in the sixteenth and seventeeth century. The focus of this paper is a philological and cultural assessment of the translations of these works. First the author discusses the format of the works in their original languages, then he gives an outline of the printing history of individual translations and finally he analyses selected passages from these works for accuracy and quality of translation.
