MANUSCRIPTS

Kühn (= K) vol. X has provided the base text for ours printed here.

The Latin text printed in K (abbreviated by us as KLat in this volume) was produced three hundred years before K was printed, and so is not a translation, or a correction of K’s Greek text. It clearly draws on other MSS than those used by K, reflecting different readings in the Greek. This may sometimes alert us to a problem in K; but generally we have not privileged the Latin translation over K’s Greek text.

For a list of MSS of the MM, see Diels, pp. 91–92. The following manuscripts are referred to in our textual notes with the abbreviation listed.

B—British Library MS Add. 6898 (London; 12th cent.)1

P1—Parisinus Gr. 2160 (Paris; 14th cent.)

P2—Parisinus Gr. 2171 (Paris; 15th cent.)2
