Toynbee "Cavalcanti, Guido, summarized for Inf. VI. 73"
famous Florentine poet. He was born probably c. 1255.

Several of the early commentators suppose that Guido Cavalcanti and D. himself are the two persons referred to by Ciacco (in Circle III of Hell) who, in speaking of the corrupt state of Florence, says Giusti son due, e non vi sono intesi, i.e. there are two just citizens, but no heed is paid to them, [Inf. vi. 73].
