Comment Coxe (1969: 98-99) notes that the epigram consists of six verses and refers to Bandini, Catalogus codicum manuscriptorum Bibliothecae Mediceae Laurentianae (II, 1768: 261), who published a five-verse variant of this poem based on a different ms. (see DBBE, Occurrence 19404). Hence, Coxe includes verse 4, which is missing in Bandini.
