Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ...are very many corruptions in Plautus, owing to this wholesale parablepsy. See, for instance, G. Goetz on the omissions in J in the British Museum Analecta Plautina, p. 73, seqq.). Pseudulus, 1174. Ha. Contumeliam si dices, audies. Ba. Quotumo die Ex Sicyone hue peruenisti? Ha.
