Footnotes

  • "Sometimes found separately. The signatures for Tibullus have not survived in any copy so far described and its position in the volume is therefore uncertain" (ISTC). In this copy the second and third gatherings of the Tibullus have partial manuscript signatures b-c8, and there are manuscript corrections and additions to signatures elsewhere.
