Kivista di Filologia, Vol. XLVIII (1919). 

Pp. 1-4. This volume of the Eivista is dedicated to the Presi- 
dent and people of the United States, in grateful recognition of 
services rendered to Italy during the Great War. 

Pp. 5-26. Giuseppe Fraccaroli. An appreciative review of a 
distinguished scholar's work, especially on Pindar, Aeschylus 
and Plato. By C. 0. Zuretti. 

Pp. 27-33. Divagazioni sul ritmo oratorio. R. Sabbadini. 
The writer infers from a passage of Claudius Sacerdos (G. L. 
VI 493 K) that accentual rhythm (in prose) was taught and 
practised in the third century, side by side with the teaching of 
quantitative rhythm. 

P. 34. Un indovinello anagrammatieo. R. Sabbadini. A 
note on the famous puzzle Sator arepo tenet, etc. The writer 
tamely substitutes opera for arepo, and sator for rotas, thus 
reducing the possible meaning to a single phrase of three words, 
sator opera tenet or tenet opera sator. 

Pp. 35-41. Incerti poetae Octavia. Luigi Valmaggi. A 
recent edition of the Octavia (by A. Santoro, 1918) argues for 
a late date of composition, as late as the third century. Val- 
maggi examines the arguments offered, but finds no reason for 
thinking that it was written later than the time of Vespasian. 

Pp. 42-53. Sopra la prima bucolica di Virgilio. Giacomo 
Giri. Tityrus is not Vergil, or Vergil's vilicus, but an ima- 
ginary person, now the owner of a bit of land which be formerly 
held as a slave. He is really a less important character in the 
Eclogue than Meliboeus. Apparently the poet's chief purpose 
was to emphasize not so much the good fortune of Tityrus as 
the distress of his less fortunate neighbors. 

Pp. 54-75. Le opere spurie di Epicarmo e l'Epicharmus di 
Ennio. Carlo Pascal. Speculation as to the Pseudepicharmeia 
mentioned by Athenaeus (XIV 648 D) and some of the frag- 
ments of Ennius. 

Pp. 76-80. Demetrio Triclinio e gli scolii a Teocrito. Fran- 
cesco Garin. Triclinius used only a single codex, of the Genus 
Vaticanum. The scholia which he gives under his own name 
are for the most part a compilation of earlier notes (especially 
on Idylls 1-8), with a few additional notes, explanatory, etymo- 



logical or grammatical, on lines on which he found no com- 

Pp. 81-95. Erennio Modestino. Giovanni Pesenti prints the 
text of the Periochae of Vergil as given in Codex Monacensis 
Lat. 807 (M). These are ascribed to Herennius Modestinus, or 
' Modestinus iurisconsultus.' They were perhaps written by 
Modestinus the tutor of the young Maximinus (emperor 235-8). 

Pp. 96-134. Reviews and notices of new books: A. C. Clark, 
The Descent of Manuscripts; Walter Dennison, A Gold Treas- 
ure of the Late Roman Period ; W. A. Merrill, Lucreti de Rerum 
Natura libri sex; Clifford H. Moore, Pagan Ideas of Immor- 
tality during the Early Empire; Henry A. Sanders, The Wash- 
ington Manuscript of the Psalms; etc. 

Pp. 135-160. Reports of periodicals and list of books received. 

P. 160. Obituary notice of Benedetto Soldati (d. Dec. 26, 
1918), editor of the Carmina of Pontano. 

Pp. 161-215. Osservazioni sulla terza guerra Sannitica. 
Vincenzo Costanzi. A study of the situation of Rome immedi- 
ately after the Second Samnite War, the relations between Lu- 
cania and Rome before the Third War, the behavior of the Luca- 
nians at the time of the Third War, the part played by the 
' Samnites ' and the ' Sabines,' the military action of the years 
297-296, the Etruscans in the Third Samnite War. There is an 
appendix on the expedition of Cleonymus and the location of 
Thuriae (Livy, x 2). Thuriae was probably south of Brun- 

Pp. 216-222. Preteso oblio della quantita nei grammatici 
latini. Enrico Cocchia. On p. 31 of this volume R. Sabbadini 
reports the grammarian M. Plotius Sacerdos as regarding 
Cicero's clausula perspicere possit as the close of a hexameter 
verse. This is based on a misinterpretation of Sacerdos' words 
(VI 493, K.). 

Pp. 223-240. Tibulliana. P. Calonghi. Some readings re- 
ported from a recent examination of the Codex Ambrosianus. 

Pp. 241-248. Theocritea. Francesco Garin. Notes on Id. 
II 33-4; II 106; XIII 14; XIII 61-3; XV 77; XV 79; XV 
100-1. In II 106 the best manuscripts have lv Se /te™™ not 
Ik Se. That is, beads of perspiration stood out on her forehead. 
In XIII 15 at,™ may be a genitive; cp. the Italian expression 
ritrae dal padre,' of a son who is like his father. XIII 61 
should be omitted. In XV 77 6.TroK\a£as means that the bride- 
groom shuts in (kAcui) the bride, separating her (d™) from her 
girl friends. 


Pp. 249-259. Note su Pausania. Tito Tosi. Notes on I 
22, 6 ; II 16, 6-7 ; IV 5, 6 (read 'AvSpoxAeous [ilv exSiSorai 
TloX.U)(a.fyrjV «>s avovia re <!_Kal 8civa^> icoi Trepa havmv Cipyotrjaevov) ; 
VIII24, 4;X 26, 4. 

Pp. 260-270. Particolarita della costruzione del nominativus 
cum infinitivo. A. Gandiglio. 

Pp. 271-273. M. Minucio Felice Oct. 14, 1. Arnaldo Bel- 
trami. " Homo Plautinae prosapiae " = homo caninae prosa- 
piae = unus de grege advocatorum vel causarum patronorum 
(cp. Festus, pp. 259, 84 Lindsay) . " Pistorum praecipuus " = 
advocatorum vel causarum patronorum praecipuus. 

Pp. 274-277. Note all' Elettra di Euripide. Giuseppe Am- 
mendola. Discussion of lines 95, 164-65, 251, 641. 

Pp. 277-278. Nota a Sofocle. Giuseppe Ammendola. Dis- 
cussion of Philoctetes, 830-31. The chorus prays that sleep 
"scenda in mezzo alia luce serena diffusa nell' aria e si posi 
sugli occhi dell' eroe infelice." 

Pp. 279-298. Reviews and notices of new books. 

Pp. 299-316. Reports of classical journals. 

P. 320. Notice of the death of Professor Pietrc Rasi of the 
University of Padua (Apr. 2, 1919). 

Pp. 321-326. Le novissime dubitazioni contro la etruscita 
delle due iscrizioni preelleniche di Lemno. Elia Lattes. A 
reply to L. Pareti's article, Rivista, XL VI 153 ff. 

Pp. 327-337. Studi sull' accento greco e latino. Accentus 
mater musices. M. Lenchantin De Gubernatis. In ancient 
singing, as in modern, the normal prose accent of a word was 
sometimes transposed. 

Pp. 338-347. II testo interpolato del Ludus di Seneca. Re- 
migio Sabbadini. The first edition of the Ludus was published 
at Rome in 1513. The name of the editor, C. Sylvanus (Ger- 
manicus), is an Academic pseudonym; he belonged to the circle 
founded at Rome by his countryman Goritz (' Corycius '). His 
interpolations are taken mainly from Suetonius and Juvenal. 
[Sabbadini 6ays that only two copies of the editio princeps are 
known, one in the Vatican and one at Munich. A. P. Ball, in 
his edition of the Ludus, New York, 1902, described a third 
copy, in the library of Columbia University. And in his com- 
mentary he indicated the source of each of Sylvanus' interpola- 
tions.] The first three editions by Beatus Rhenanus merely 
reproduce the text of the editio princeps. In his fourth edition, 
1529, he was able to make some use of the Codex Wissenburg- 
ensis. [In Rhenanus' commentary on the Ludus, 1515, he 


twice cites Velleius Paterculus, whom he had just discovered 
that year. These citations confirm Robinson Ellis's argument 
that the copy of the Murbach MS. written by Boniface Amer- 
bach, Aug. 1516, is not the copy made for Rhenanus by his 
' amicus quidam.'] 

Pp. 348-350. Tener vaccula. M. Lenchantin De Gubernatis. 
In the Vergilian Catalepton, 2, 14, teneraque matre mugieute 
vaccula, it might be well to revive the conjecture of Muretus, 
tenerque . . . vaccula, and call ' tener ' a feminine, like ' pauper.' 

Pp. 351-357. Le avventure di Leucippo e Clitofonte nel pa- 
piro di Oxyrhynchos 1250. Francesco Garin. A papyrus of the 
beginning of the fourth century has preserved a long passage 
of the second book of Achilles Tatius. This shows a striking 
Tariation from the text of the mediaeval manuscripts : chapters 
II and III of the manuscript text are here inserted between 
chapters VIII and IX. This gives the narrative in a better 
order. The new fragment is of considerable importance for 
constituting the text. It helps to fix the date of Achilles Tatius : 
about 250, certainly not later than 300. 

Pp. 358-365. Delia relazione che intercede secondo Fozio tra 
Lucio di Patrae e Luciano. Enrico Cocchia. A defence of 
Tiews set forth in the writer's study of Apuleius, 1915 (A. J. P. 
XXXVIII 317). 

Pp. 366-380. Clemente Alessandrino nell' Ottavio di Minu- 
cio Felice. Arnaldo Beltrami. The first instalment of an at- 
tempt to show that Minucius knew and used the writings of 
Clement of Alexandria. 

Pp. 381-387. Nota Virgiliana. Gino Funaioli. The first 
line of the sixth Eclogue, Prima Syracosio dignata est ludere 
versu, means, ' My muse was the first to sing,' etc., not ' At first, 
my Muse,' etc. 

Pp. 388-393. Note critiche ed ermeneutiche ad Aurelius Vic- 
tor. Francesco Stabile. Notes on 1, 6 ; 3, 1 ; 3, 3 ; 3, 7 ; 3, 8 : 
8, 2; 12, 1; 17, 7; 20, 27; 24, 10; 37, 7; 39, 11; 39, 26. 

Pp. 394-397. Etimologia di vinolentus. Francesco Stabile. 
Defends the old etymology, from vinum with the suffix lentus, 
against a recent derivation from vinum and olere. 

Pp. 398-413. Proteo e Cirene nella favola Virgiliana di 
Aristeo. Giaeomo Giri. The information given to Aristaeus 
by Proteus and by Cyrene is the information which it was 
appropriate for each of them to give. 

Pp. 414-422. Philodemea. Ettore Bignone. A study of 
Pap. Here. ined. 168; Pap. Here. 57. 


Pp. 423-433. Nuove ricerche sul proemio del poema di Lu- 
crezio. Ettore Bignone. Lines 44-49 of the first book, ' omnis 
enim per se divum natura,' etc., are probably not an interpola- 
tion, and should be kept in the text. The lacuna should be 
indicated just before them, not after them. 

Pp. 434-438. Teocrito nel papiro di Ossirinco 1618. Fran- 
cesco Garin. This papyrus is of very little value for the text. 

P. 439. In Leonardum Vincium. B. Stampini. A Latin 
epigram written for the fourth centenary of the artist's death. 

Pp. 440-444. Pietro Easi. A sympathetic sketch of Easi's 
life and work, by M. Lenchantin Be Gubernatis. 

Pp. 445-490. Eeviews and notices of new books: The Oxy- 
rhynchus Papyri, Part XIII (a detailed report by C. 0. Zu- 
retti) ; E. Sabbadini, [P. Vergili Maronis] Catalepton; some 
pleasant comments on the Hoeufft prize poems of 191.7 and 
1918; Concetto Marchesi, Le Corone di Prudenzio tradotte e 
illustrate; Emilio Costa, Cicerone giureeonsulto, Parte IV; etc. 

Pp. 491-506. Eeports of classical periodicals. 

Pp. 507-512. List of new books received. 

W. P. Mustard. 

Eevue de Philologie, Vol. XLIII (1919), pts. 1, 2. 

Pp. 5-20. Notes de critique verbale sur Scribonius Largus 
(continued from Vol. XLII). Paul Jourdan. The general 
conclusion of this long article seems to be that the text of Scri- 
bonius is too uncertain for any profitable study of his Latinity. 

Pp. 21-34. Eudoxe de Cnide et l'Egypte, contribution a 
1'etude du syncretisme greco-egyptien. Georges Meautis. A 
study of two passages of Plutarch, De Isid. et Osir., c. 6 and 
c. 64. These passages indicate that Eudoxus paid some atten- 
tion to the assimilation of the gods of Egypt and Greece, but 
did not accept all the identifications which were generally pro- 
posed. The first passage suggests that he reported as Egyptian 
some theories and conceptions which may properly be called 

P. 35. Ehetorique a Herennius, IV, xxii, 31. L. Bayard. 
In the statement "Alexandre si vita data longior esset, trans 
Oceanum . . . Macedonum transvolasset," the lacuna might be 
filled by the word " nomen." 

Pp. 36-46. Deux papyrus des ' Pubblicazioni della Societa 
italiana.' Paul Collart. No. 149 is an epic fragment from some 


poet of the school of Nonnus. No. 156 is a fragment of a Life 
of Aesop. 

P. 46. Thucydide II 65, 12. L. Bayard. The MS. Teading 
rpia f>h> errj may very well be retained. The period during which 
Athens had to contend against so many enemies at once lasted 
three years— from 407, when Cyrus joined in the war, to the 
capitulation of the city in 404. 

Pp. 47-62. Les papyrus d'Oxyrhynehos, a propos de tome 
XIII. Paul Collart. Discussion (with translations) of the 
new Oxyrhynchus fragments of Lysias, of Hyperides'(?) For 
Lycophron, and of the dialogue Alcibiades of Aeschines the So- 
cratic. Pap. 1622 gives a new reading of Thucydides, II 67, 3. 
Here the MSS. have to ttXoIov <5 epeXXov top 'EXXtjo-ttovtov 
irepai<!>ativ. The papyrus has to trXolov epeXXe, k. t. X. Collart 
proposes a ' contamination ' of the two texts : <5 Z/xtXXe . . . , 
'the vessel on which he was to send them across.' 

Pp. 63-65. Color deterrimus (Virgile, Georgiques, III 82). 
J. S. Phillimore. For ' color deterrimus albis | et gilvo' read 
' albis | e gilvo,' i. e., ' cream-coloured.' 

Pp. 66-77. ^ Notes sur VElectre de Sophocle. L. Parmentier. 
In line 363 povov is an adverb, not an adjective, and P6<tkt)iml is 
the subject of /aj Xvwelv i^i—" Quant a moi, qu'il me suffise que 
ce que je mange ne me repugne pas." At 775 ff. translate : " lui 
qui, ne de ma propre vie, a deserte mon sein et a fui ma tutelle, 
pour vivre a l'etranger." Notes on 1220, 1312-3, 1344, 1466-7. 

Pp. 78-85. Un mythe pythagoricien chez Posidonius et 
Philon. Franz Cumont. A comment on a passage of Philo of 
Alexandria, De Plant. Noe, 28, §117 3. This passage shows 
the influence of the Stoic teachings of Posidonius. 

Pp. 86-92. Hypotheses critiques sur les Pensees de Mare- 
Aurele. A.-I. Trannoy. Textual conjectures on I 16, 17; II 
17, 1; III 11, 2; III 12, 1; IV 27; V 4; V 7; V 15 1; V 23, 3:
