Abstract
This paper is concerned with the expression of simultaneity (or concomitance) and anteriority in the Historia persecutionis Africanae prouinciae of the late African writer Victor Vitensis (5th cent. AD). The main focus is set on the present participle and its uses with preterital value, that is referring to an action which precedes in time the main clause. The phenomenon has been largely investigated in scholarship, in particular by Lyer and Eklund. These studies have greatly increased our knowledge and understanding of the problem. Most of them, however, share two common lacks: firstly, they do not give numerical and/or statistical data on the frequency of present participle and, more specifically, of its preterital usage; secondly and most importantly, the problem has not been related to the more general study of all syntactic means denoting simultaneity or anteriority between actions. Both aspects are taken into consideration in the present investigation.
