Since (as I learn through Prof. Strecker's kindness), the
satirical poem in Vat. Pal. lat. 153 has been, by some mis-
fortune, overlooked in the collection of material for Mon. Germ.

refully corrected.

altered here and there by the (chief) corrector of the MS

Plurima raduntur, partem ne trunca manerent,

Plurima nec fuerant, plurima rursus erant.
