Notes

Bischoff: Irish exemplar? Mynors (ed.), Cassiodori Senatoris Institutiones (Oxford, 1937), pp XV–XVI: Irish abbreviations for autem and per sometimes taken over, sometimes wrongly interpreted. Two embedded Irish glosses misunderstood: sitipio (sc. stibio): id est o dub dabrom (John Fraser: ó dub da bró); fenus: id est amthi (cf. Sg. 11b19 l: foenus: aithi).
