Huskey Hugh Cayless Digital Latin Library 2017 Library of Digital Latin Texts 1 Calpurnii et Nemesiani Bucolica, CaesarGiarratano, Naples, Detken et Rocholl, 1910 III. Manuscripts: The First Family (N G) Now I must discuss the manuscripts of the first family: N = Neapolitanus V a 8 and G = Gaddianus Laur. plut. 90, 12 inf. For descriptions of the manuscripts themselves, see the bibliography below ("First Family"). I will focus here on previous editors’ use of these manuscripts before I provide a detailed comparison of the readings by the manuscript hands. Regarding N, Jacques Philippe D’Orville was the first to collate it carefully enough for Pieter Burmann’s use; his collation appears in the appendix to Burman’s Poetae Latini Minores Vol. 1. Next, Conrad Bursian examined it on behalf of Moriz Haupt, but nothing is known about the quality of his collation, since the edition promised by Haupt was never published. Baehrens was the next to use it, but in way that rightly earned the scorn of Schenkl, who collated the manuscript in 1878 and inspected it again a few years later when preparing his second edition of Calpurnius and Nemesianus. For my part, I examined the entire manuscript in 1907, but to remove all of the discrepancies between my collation and the testimony of Schenkl, in the summer of 1909 my friend Giampietro Zottoli inspected with me all of the places where Schenkl had a different reading, and we often uncovered carelessness on Schenkl’s part. I have published in my apparatus criticus the entire collation of his manuscript, omitting not even the slightest thing to do with orthography. G was mentioned by Glaeser and Haupt, but Baehrens was the first to examine it, far too hurriedly; Schenkl was the next to use it, much more carefully. I myself transcribed the manuscript in 1908 with as much attentiveness as I could, but I collated it again in the following year, to settle all of the discrepancies with Schenkl. Still, there are very many places that Schenkl has reported erroneously, as you can gather from my notes, for I have taken greatest pains to publish all of the readings of this manuscript, too. Having described the outer appearance of manuscripts N and G and explained their provenance, I must now discuss in more detail their relationship and their importance. Until now, no one except Baehrens and Schenkl has examined the authority of either manuscript. It is no wonder, since Baehrens was the first to collate the Gaddianus, and no one before Glaeser considered the Neapolitanus of much value. But Baehrens and Schenkl held different opinions: the former, as usual, overvalues a manuscript that he was the first to publish and argues that the Gaddianus is superior to the others; the latter, however, prefers the Neapolitanus. But Baehrens asserts his point of view instead of demonstrating it with strong evidence. On the other hand, Schenkl tried to demonstrate that the Gaddianus admitted interpolations in some places. It seems to me that neither one has hit upon the truth entirely, as I think the following makes clear. I have already said that both manuscripts descend from the same archetype, and that is supported by the very large number of readings that N has in common with G, when something else is written in the rest of the manuscripts. But, to be fair, they differ among themselves in many places, and it is right to discuss their differences so that it will be easier to see which manuscript departs less from the archetype. In doing this, I take no account of readings that are attributed to the second or third hand in the Neapolitanus or of the various readings that the copyist added in the margin of the Gaddianus. I shall consider those later. But first of all, although the repute of each of the two manuscripts is frequently distorted because of the carelessness and ignorance of the copyists, it seems to me that the Gaddianus was copied a little more carelessly. For instance, four verses (Calp. 1.40, 4.16, 4.123; Nemes. 1.73) are missing from it, and Nemesianus 2.49 has been placed after verse 45: Moreover, the following words have been omitted: Calp. 1.92 ipsa, 2.88 quotiens, 3.23 deus, 3.3 sed, 3.89 non. But in the Neapolitan manuscript, no verse is missing (it is unnecessary, I think, for me to remind you that I speak here about the unique defects of each manuscript, not about the common defects that are rightly assigned to the archetype), but Calp. 1.31–32 have been inverted, and Nemes. 2.81 was inserted after 3.16. Then the copyist overlooked the following words: Calp. 6.46 pignus, 6.90 hoc, Nemes. 1.23 et, 1.71 et, 3.5 ex tereti, 4.60 audit. Add to this the fact that in almost 130 places N offers the correct reading and G an erroneous one and the opposite happens a little less frequently. Each of the two manuscripts has some errors (N has more by far) in common with V, which could not have happened in every case entirely by chance. The following places are clearly due to interpolation: Calp. 2.73 cicius or citius tenues NV, 3.35 quod NV, 6.25 verba N, verba and verbo V, 6.82 te stante NV, 7.33 tibi GV, Nemes. 3.37 ostendit. The rest of the examples are either doubtful or should be disregarded entirely. Next, some have deemed the following places in G as possibly suspicious: Calp. 1.12 errantes, 1.85 accipiet, 3.20 invenias, 4.2 obstrepit, 4.53 discere, 4.72 aspernatur, 4.85 corpore, 4.105 enim, 4.150 liquide, 5.31 primum, 5.44 pascua, 5.52, quod, 6.59 mascillo, 7.11 herus, 7.26 in, 7.41 non, Nemes. 1.2 raris, 1.5 flavit, 1.16 carmina, 1.63 carmina, 1.82 canis, 2.27 nostri tamquam, 2.32 ethera, 2.74 omnes, 2.89 discedere, 3.52 saliensque liquore. But enim, pascua, mascillo, in, canis are without doubt glosses inserted later in place of the poets’ words. One could say the same thing about accipiet, ethera, discedere. Also aethera and discedere are just as good as aera and descendere, and for a long time I was not sure which of the two I preferred. And liquide, primum, flavit, carmina (Nemes. I 16) should not be considered interpolations, but rather corruptions that arose in these places since the words that should have been written by the copyist appeared nearby. Thus, liquide is derived from dulce, primum from spatium, flavit from inflare, carmina from carmine. But carmina (Nemes. 1.63) is either a gloss or a corruption that owes its origin from the initial sound of the next word, and corpore and robore are very often confused in the manuscripts. Then there are these words: herus, raris, omnes. One would hardly believe that they were made by an interpolator since they are meaningless. But for the most part, the rest of the examples can be attributed to an interpolator. The following places in N should be considered: Calp. 1.13 sequar, 4.46 inter nostras, 4.136 pede velox, 4.153 in, 4.164 vestros, Nemes. 2.71 ducas. in is a gloss. ducas is closer to ducam, which the inferior manuscripts have, than to duco, which G correctly offers. vestros is owed to an interpolator. The rest are uncertain. Finally, the writings of both manuscripts have been corrupted in various ways, but sometimes they betray an infelicitous effort at emendation. I would like you to consider the following places, for it is not necessary to say anything about the rest): Calp. 1.90 querit N, petit G; 2.96 o G; 3.50 turbidus G; 4.63 carmen modulavit G; 4.125 placanda G; 5.15 montibus G; 5.16 cecinere G; 5.104 nectendum N, videndum G; Nemes. 2.30 nullo sudarunt G, 4.28 volucrum tum G; 4.39 subeunte G. Indeed it is hardly the case that all of these places are equally suspicious, for o is a gloss, and I do not think one should think otherwise about carmen modulavit. But turbidus is clearly an interpolation, which I could hardly say about volucrum tum. Then querit and petit perhaps stem from a poorly understood abbreviation of the word quatit, but that gives me pause. But the other examples, with due respect to Schenkl, are hardly attributable to interpolators, unless you happen to think that those interpolators were completely ignorant of the Latin language. But before we pass judgment on the authority of manuscripts N and G, we must say a few things about the corrections that each manuscript underwent. Manuscript N, as we said above, was emended rather often by the original copyist and others. But all of the emendations of the first hand, which I have detected in almost sixty places, arose from the archetype itself. The copyist, as often happens, sometimes corrected the more trivial scribal errors as he wrote; we are all used to making these errors when we write. Accordingly, he added letters that he omitted by writing too quickly, or he deleted extra letters, or he changed vowels and consonants, or he added words that had been omitted, or he restored the order of verses, or he inserted notes about people. Since that is the case, nearly all of the emendations by the first hand are good, or, to state it more truthfully, they restore the wording of the archetype. At Calp. 1.20, the first hand corrected dipicta to depicta, which Jacoby recently defended in vain, since descripta is to be read without doubt (cfr. Verg. Ecl. 5.13 and Calp. 1.25), but depicta was in the archetype, as G shows us. Similarly at Nemes. 4.65 aversa is wrong (cfr. Verg. Ecl. 8.101 sq.), and the first hand has changed the fault into adversa, but adversa is found in G, from which you can easily conclude that the same reading appeared in the archetype. Only once did the first hand corrupt the true reading of the archetype (Calp. 3.67 qui from quam), but that should be attributed to an abbreviation, not at all to his intellect. Finally, all of the corrections of the first hand are confirmed by the readings in manuscript G, with the exception of Calp. 1.24 propius, where I have reasonable suspicion that the person who wrote G misread the word. The second hand’s so-called emendations are three times as frequent as the first hand’s, but in terms of proportion, they are found much more often in Calpurnius than in Nemesianus, and around a third of them are correct. For the most part, the second hand corrects scribal errors of a more trivial sort, but sometimes it restores omitted verses or errors, or it corrects transposed verses, or it completely overhauls more serious problems. In general, the second hand’s emendations come from manuscripts of the second family, not the archetype, but an interpolator has corrected some of them after his own fashion. It does not take many examples to demonstrate this, but, to begin with passages successfully restored, consider these readings with me, dear reader: Comparison of N¹ and G with N² and V Line N¹ and G N²V 1.20 depicta N (ex dipicta) G descripta 1.25 codice cortice 1.42 omitted added 1.55 profuso professo (and many other mss.) 1.87 a ex (and many other mss.) 3.26 ibi sibi 4.12 C. omitted C. added 4.46 quicquam quisquam 4.82 canat canit 4.124 raptas ruptas 4.145 nos hos 5.7 entire line placed before line 6 corrected 5.28 vivat vivit 5.45 peragunt peragit 7.48 tibi ubi Nemes. 2.50 cum dum 3.6 h N, om. G hanc pueri tamquam On the other hand, an interpolator has cleverly emended the following:Calp. 3.91 licidan N², licidax N, licidas or lycidas G V, 4.152 teriti N G, tereti N². Does it not seem to you that I have demonstrated what I set out to prove? Or does it seem likely that N and G corrupted the good readings of the archetype in the same way in all of these places? But, if you need more proof, reflect on these other examples. First of all, in following places the second hand of manuscript N substituted the interpolations that mar the manuscripts in V for the genuine readings of the archetype: Calp. 2.8 vindicet* (I have indicated all correct readings with an asterisk) N G, vendicet N²V; 2.9 thyrsi*, tyrsi G, tirsi N, tirso N²V pler.; 4.42 baetis*, bethis G, beris N, bactrus N²V; 4.53 tantum-ventos* N G, solum-nimbos N²V pler.; 4.75 quam* G, q̅m N, qua N²V nonn.; 4.131 iam surdant* G, iam surdat N, exsurdant N²V nonn.; 4.148 deas* G (deas = Musas, as F. Leo demonstrated), d’as N, deos N²V; 5.49 afferet* N G, afferat N²V nonn.; 5.61 serique-premendi* N G, seraeque-merendae N²V; 5.97 circitor* N G, vinitor N²V; 5.99 nunc* N G, tunc N²V; 6.47 perdere* N, prodere G, pendere N²V; 6.75 illis N G, ipsi N²V, pler.; N 1.27 laudem* N G, musam N²V; 1.54 iuris* N G, iusti N²V; 2.28 nostros posset* N G, posset rapidos N²V pler.; 4.66 urar* N, uror G, arsi N²V; cfr praeterea 4.63 carmen modulabile N²V nonn., which Baehrens would not have received into the text, if he had assessed carefully the things Haupt discussed about elisions in Calpurnius, and 5.65 coagulat lacte N², which clearly comes from coagula lactis V. Next, in the following places the second hand made some very poor attempts at conjectures for words handed down in the tradition: Calp. 1.31 sequaci* G, sagaci N²; 1.73 auferet* N G, afferet N²; 1.85 excipiet* N, excuciet N²; 2.76 herbas* N G, uvas N²; 3.25 sprevi* G, spiritu̅ N, speciem N²; 3.46 acerba* N G, avena N²; 4.79 succinet*, subcinit G, succinit N, sucinat N²; 4.106 palen*, panem N G, palam N²; 4.111 densat* G, pensat N, pulsat N²; 4.121 et* N G, at N²; 4.124 saliat*, psallat G, psalat N, psaliat N²; 5.27 voca* N G, loca N²; 6.19 vis* N G, visne N²; 6.37 fruticat*, fruticet G, frutiō N, fruticem N²; 6.69 mutavimus* N G, mutuabimus N²; Nemes. 1.1 fiscella* N G, cistella N², 1.5 versuque* N G, versusque N²; 2.17 leves* N G, lenes N². And so if the second hand’s emendations agree with manuscripts of family V, they can add no authority to them, since they arose from them; but if they depend on no other manuscript, they must be considered to be the conjectures of a fairly learned person. If we have discussed them correctly, the emendations of that sort are entirely without merit, and I did not unjustly omit them outright when I compared manuscript N with G. Finally, there are five emendations by the third hand, of which three are good (Calp. 2.1 puer, 2.4 gravis, 2.33 pomona) and two are bad (Calp. 1.59 truderit, 5.11 ganā). Manuscript G offers more than eighty emendations in its own right. With two or three exceptions where you can recognize another hand, they are the work of the original copyist. Sometimes he restored verses or words that had been omitted, but for the most part he corrected the more trivial scribal errors. All of the corrections are good, and they are derived from the archetype itself (as agreement with its twin manuscript shows), with only three exceptions: Nemes. 2.73, 3.63, 4.10, which the scribe unsucessfully tried to emend. Nemes. 3.53 does not count, since in this passage either the copyist of manuscript N could read poorly, or G entered a correction made either above the line or in the margin of the archetype. But aside from these emendations I found nearly alternate readings in the margin of this manuscript, which most often were added by the copyist himself. All are derived either from some manuscript of no special repute or from the conjecture of some scholar. For the most part, they are not even worthy of mention. If I have done my job, it is clear what we should think about each of these manuscripts. Manuscripts N and G outstrip the others not only in the good quality of their archetype, but also because their copyists were content to transcribe the archetype faithfully, and they generally abstained from interpolating the words of the poets. For very rarely have the words handed down from antiquity been corrupted by the judgment of the scribes. That is why this is the biggest difference between the Neapolitanus and the Gaddianus: that the latter generally put the reading of the archetype to the test by his own devices, but the former admitted the interpolations of inferior manuscripts. And, if we want to think clearly, the Neapolitanus should be preferred in a certain way, but not as Schenkl wanted. For the Gaddianus has nearly the same number of good readings as the Neapolitanus, and sometimes it alone out of all of the manuscripts preserves the genuine reading for us. And so, there is need for both manuscripts in representing the true picture of the archetype.
Bibliography Manuscripts First family N = Codex Neapolitanus V A 8 Naples Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli V A 8 380 1–36ʳ contain Cato’s De Agricultura; 20–101ʳ, Varro’s De Re Rustica; 101ʳ–115ᵛ, the Bucolica of Calpurnius and Nemesianus. The individual poems lack titles, but they are separated from each other by brief spaces. The following subscription appears at the end of the whole work: Aureliani Nemesiani Cartag̅ bucol’ explicit: Deo gratias amen. Finally, another more recent hand, as Bursian and Schenkl recognized, wrote Calpurnii eclogae and Nemesiani eclogae. The remaining leaves are blank. Parchment: 261 × 160 mm.: 116 leaves: 38 verses per page. With respect to correcting hands, two in particular stand out: N1 belongs to the original copyist. See above for a detailed description of this hand’s activity. N2: The manuscript was corrected again around the same time, but here and there the second hand cannot easily be distinguished from the first. N3: a third hand’s emendations can be discerned in only a few places. The manuscript was written at about the beginning of the fifteenth century. We know nothing about the origin and provenance of this manuscript except what is understood from the following passages written on the last leaf: Joannes Antonius Perillus patric. neap. ac iuvenis apprime litteratus Jacobum Perillum hoc libro donavit MDCVII, Klis Juniis (“Joannes Antonius Perillus, a nobleman of Naples and most learned gentleman, gave this book to Jacob Perillus in 1667 on the first of June”), and a little below, Antonii Seripandi ex Jacobi Perilli amici opt. munere (“This book belongs to Antonius Seripandus, received as a gift from his best friend Jacob Perillus”). Later it was brought to the library of San Giovanni a Carbonara, and from there it came to the greatest library in Naples, formerly known as the Reale biblioteca borbonica, (now the Biblioteca nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III). G = Codex Gaddianus pl. 90, 12 inf. Florence Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana plut. 90, 12 inf. It contains the twelve eclogues of Francesco Petrarch (ff. 1–44), the Culex of Vergilius Maro, the Dirae of Vergilius Maro (ff. 52–55), and Calpurnius and Nemesianus (ff. 55–74). A very brief, unattributed eclogue follows with the interlocutors Daphnis, Tityrus, Mopsus, and Meliboeus. The following inscription has been added to the eclogues of Calpurnius: Egloge Calfurnii ad nemesianum cartaginiensem. (The Eclogues of Calfurnius to Nemesianus of Carthage). Nemesianus follows Calpurnius with the following title prefixed: Aureliani nemesiani cartaginiensis egloghe incipiunt (Here begin the eclogues of Aurelianus Nemesianus of Carthage). At the end of each eclogue there appears an explicit with the number of each eclogue, but Calpurnius’ sixth eclogue lacks a subscription, and the following is written at the end of the seventh: explicit sexta egloga Calphurnii (Here ends the sixth eclogue of Calphurnius). This is explained by the fact that the seventh eclogue follows the sixth without any break, with the result that only six eclogues are attributed to Calpurnius in this manuscript. But in the margin, where the sixth eclogue ought to end, the copyist has added the following: aliqui volunt dicere quod ista sit alia et diversa egloga ubi incipit “lentus," aliqui dicunt quod est una etc. (Some wish to say that the eclogue that begins lentus is a completely different eclogue; others say that it is the same, etc.). Paper: 294 × 225 mm.: 74 leaves. Individual pages generally have 29 verses, but some vary, with the shorter ones having 26 and the longer ones haveing 32 verses. G1: The copyist himself added almost all of the corrections either by removing scribal errors in the verses or adding variant readings to the margin. See above for a more detailed description of this hand’s activity. G2: Some corrections seem to have been made by another hand. Written at the beginning of the fifteenth century.
