[selige M, elige Can.1 with a space before e, delige Bod., dilige Can.7 The fact of Can.1 having a space before elige shows that the reading was doubtful early. Rarity is again in favour of selige; but on the other hand dilige in Can.7 in the sense of delige ought not to be explained as a medieval mis-spelling. It points to a time when deligere, diligere were as interchangeable as delapsus, dilapsus in the earliest MSS. of Virgil. R. E.]
