7 This from a marginal reading.

8 I suspect it should rather be impellers, reading fero/ntwn for e0rw/twn.

9 [Compare the different use of these details in Recognitions, x. 24; also in Homily kVI. 21.-R.]

1 [Compare in general, with chaps. 2-22, the mythological statements in Recognitions, x. 17-41.-R.]

3 The passage seems to be corrupt.

14 [Comp. Recognitions, x. 32.-R.]

15 The Paris ms. has "very fine."
