'This work is not remarkable for its correctness, although, according to Wesseling, it is much preferrable to some editions which profess to give a very accurate text. It appears by an extract of Obsopoeus, that these books were only transcribed by him, as they were delivered to him by Petreius, from Brassicanus, a learned man, who corrected and altered them from the original state in whcih they were found by Janus Pannonius.'
