PREFACE

6, and

The text of this edition is substantially that of Bücheler (1893), but changes have been made freely in punctuation and orthography. Deviations from Bücheler's text which affect the meaning are noticed in the Critical Appendix.

In the text edition will be found all that has come down to us from Juvenal, including the new verses of Satire 6 discovered in 1899 by Mr. Winstedt in the Bodleian Library. It did not seem best to include in the annotated edition Satires 2, 9,

which from the nature of their subjects are not generally read with undergraduate students. Some of the readings of the Bodleian MS. are noticed in the Critical Appendix. While this MS. corresponds in general with the w class, it not infrequently retains the readings of the Codex Pithoeanus, and in a few cases may alone have preserved a correct tradition.

The commentary owes much to the editions of Heinrich, Mayor, Lewis, Friedländer, and Duff, also to Friedländer's Sittengeschichte, and his edition of Martial. In preparing that part of the Introduction which treats of language and style, important help has also been received from Kiaer, and from the dissertations of Weise and of Lupus.

I am under obligations to Professor Morris of Yale for many suggestions regarding syntax, to Mr. Winstedt of Oxford for readings of the Bodleian MS., and especially to the Editors of the Series for their uniform patience and for invaluable assistance in every part of the work.

H. P. W. NEW HAVEN, CONN. January 29, 1901.
