Notes:

2          uilitatis: this could be left as it stands or supplemented as ci]uilitatis.

3          mi]hi ternis uictoriatis: we considered this reading in the ed. pr. and it is adopted in CEL; it now seems more plausible though the absence of interpunct is noteworthy for this hand. For the phrase ternis uictoriatis see Cicero, pro Font. 9.19. For a reference to "small change" (aere minuto) see 327.2-3.

4          ]ntatas: there are many possible supplements, e.g. arge]ntatas.
ex, which we suggested in the note to the ed. pr., is adopted by CEL and we think it likely to be correct.

5          At the end ]..limo is also possible.
