Excerpt

This is a complete word index to the acknowledged works of Vergil, the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the Aeneid, and to the poems usually included in the Appendix Vergiliana. The index has been made on the basis of Ribbeck's text edition of Vergil, 1895, but it also contains the variants found in Ribbeck's critical edition, 1894, and in the editions of Ladewig-Schaper-Deuticke, 1902-1907, of Conington-Nettleship-Haverfield, 1883-1898, of Thilo, 1886, of Benoist, 1876-1880, and of Gossrau, 1876. In addition the readings are given from the edition of the Appendix Vergiliana by Ellis, 1907, and that of the Culex by Leo, 1891.

Manuscript variants are noted if they appear in any of the editions used. Important variants (i. e. different words or forms) in the manuscripts and editions are given in critical notes, while unimportant variants (e. g. those of spelling) are indicated by a dagger. In general no reference is made to the manuscripts of the Appendix Vergiliana.

Under each word the forms are arranged in the usual paradigm order. Small capitals indicate that the first of the paradigm forms occurs. In case its position in the article does not serve to identify a form, a note in parenthesis gives the information required. Whenever the vocative and the ablative are identical in spelling, any form which is not shown to be in the vocative is in the ablative. When it is impossible to locate a form exactly, to tell, for example, whether a substantive is in the dative or ablative, or whether a verb is in the future indicative or present subjunctive, the form is given in both places with cross references.

The substantive use of adjectives and participles is given after the primary use. When certain words, particularly adverbs, seem to form integral parts of phrases, these phrases follow the simple words.

The work which has resulted in this Index Verborum Vergilianus was begun in the summer of 1903. At that time it was my intention to publish a Lexicon Vergilianum. Announcement of such intention was made by the publication in 1904 of The Plan Scope of a Vergil Lexicon. Copies of this were widely distributed and it was reviewed in the leading scholarly periodicals of this country and Europe, e. g. Bursian's Jahresbericht, and the Berliner Philologische Wochenschrift. Although many congratu-
