AbstractAmong Newton's so called non-scientific projects (alchemy and theology), written to a considerable extent in Latin, the interpretation of Revelation stands in a central position. Isaac Newton (1642/3-1727) devoted great efforts to translate Apocalyptical chronology into historical chronology. In this kind of interpretation the wars of the last years of the Roman Empire play an outstanding role, and among them the invasion of Hispania by Alans, Vandals and Suevians. In this paper the author provides new information about the Hispanic sources used by the Cambridge mathematician on the topic, relying on an unpublished passage on the Alans written by Newton in Latin which has gone unnoticed by scholars (National Library of Israel, Yah. Ms. Var. 1 /Newton 19, f. 166r). At the end of this paper the author provides critical edition and Spanish translation of this Latin passage.
