That's, scribes copying from an entire statement onto a docked manuscript may easily disregard the probably superfluous notes. in reality, the scholia do contain remark on strains which are now not of their copies (see degree four, below). The uniformity of the manuscripts and the scholia element as an alternative to an early loss. a few have argued that this curtailed ultimate satire represents the nation within which Juvenal left issues at his loss of life (Courtney (1967) 38, (1980) 613). despite the fact that, that situation won't paintings except Juvenal died (Monty Pythonlike) in mid-sentence and accurately at line finish. in terms of Persius, the posthumous editors Cornutus and Caesius Bassus docked a couple of verses to make it tidy (Vita Pers. 41–44 ed. Clausen), and Knoche ((1940) sixty three) steered that that's what Juvenal’s heirs and assigns could have performed (Highet (1954) 156–58). moreover, the truncated model must characterize now not the incomplete kingdom of simply Satire sixteen yet of e-book five (Satires 13–16; Freeman (1975) 425 argues that the booklet may need contained extra satires yet at 814 traces in its present kingdom ebook five is quickly operating out of room). One want purely distinction the kingdom of the Aeneid at Virgil’s demise: part verses yet no longer part sentences. Highet’s bankruptcy define offers the case succinctly ((1954) xiv): “The 16th is simply a fraction . . . the satire breaks off at line 60. The holiday happened very early. Juvenal didn't put up it during this country, nor was once it censored, nor used to be it so released after his dying, consequently it was once mutilated after book. ” a number of different verses have been misplaced: a lacuna after sixteen. 2 is a universally famous case. This unique textual content had additionally, as though by means of reimbursement, won a few verses. this is often atypical for a piece probably so ignored, however the interpolated strains are found in each manuscript or even pointed out within the historic commentaries (Jachmann (1943); Courtney (1975)). transparent examples are three. 113, three. 281, 6. 188, eight. 258, eleven. ninety nine, eleven. 161, 12. 50–51, thirteen. 166, although there was huge confrontation on which different verses need to pass. Nisbet ((1962) 234) and Courtney ((1975) 161) prompt that lots of them got here from a unmarried resource (with an 150 Persius and Juvenal: Texts and Contexts over-fondness for particles). we will be able to spot a few interpolations by means of explanatory introductions (nam, and so on. ). Tarrant examines the mechanisms of interpolation and issues to an inclination to “grandly polysyllabic adjectives and a dependence on metrically handy yet rhetorically feeble qualifiers like multus” ((1987), (1989) 131; for examples from Juvenal, (1989) 131–32, 135–37, 144–45, 148–50). None of those varieties of “emendation, annotation, and collaboration” admit the large-scale additions imagined through past or contemporary Interpolationsforschung (see Parker and Braund during this quantity, bankruptcy 19). 2 At this aspect a replica (or copies? ) of a few type was once made with the Oxford fragment nonetheless intact, ready to teach up later in O, which has this passage yet no longer the finishing of Satire sixteen (k in Courtney’s stemma, (1967) 43).
