Nam ad hanc usque, tertium diem iam proeellae tenuerunt et vehementi impetu se in pelagus ex promontoriis venti immiserunt”) in Epistolae Graecanicae Mutuae, Geneva, 1606 (the attribution on the title-page, à Iacobo Cuiacio . . . magnam partem Latinitate donatae, is generally discredited; see Fabricius-Harles, Bibliotheca Graeca4, i [Hamburg, 1790], 676).
