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
- 1We are not attempting to provide here a full collation of B against K. B exhibits many other differences, e.g., in word order and in orthography; and it is interesting for other reasons as well. But we have very rarely noted these.
- 2We have not directly consulted the two Paris MSS. We have made use of some of its readings for Books 1 and 2 as they are reported by R. J. Hankinson (1991), App. 1, pp. 235–37.
