Notes

  • Scope and Contents

    The only difference from the published work is that the cases are not numbered continuously, but internally within each heading, and that there are no indexes (except for a fragment, Adv.MS.81.7.19, folio 207).

    In the individual descriptions, the numbers of the cases (as in the published work), the headings, and the pages of the published work are given in that order.
