It seems likely that, initially, Livy intended to end his history with the civil war and the return to a lawful state, that is the years 30–27 BC when he started writing his Roman history, sharing in the hope of renewal that the politicians claimed they would strive toward when they talked of a res publica restituta (Hurlet and Mineo 2009).

J H Stemma for the Second Decade M44 (or Mediceus) was copied at Corbie, or at Tours for Corbie (von Büren 1996, 60), at the end of the ninth century, first directly from P and then from R (Reeve 1996c, 88 n. 53; Busonero 2004, 34). It never went further than 30, 26, 10 (Reeve 1987a, 160). C45 (or Colbertinus), copied at Cluny at the end of the tenth century (von Büren, 1996, 59–63), is the only known manuscript that derives from P independently from R and transmits all the Decade. It is therefore particularly important for Book 21 and for the end of Book 30.
