previous next

In the MSS., 17 is immediately followed by 21; but the earlier editors, influenced by the identity of meter, inserted as 18 the fragmentary address to Priapus beginning hunc lucum tibi dedico, and followed it, as 19 and 20, with two poems of similar character, beginning hunc ego iuvenes locum, and ego haec ego arte fabricata rustica. The first fragment is quoted by Terentianus Maurus (v.2754) and ascribed by him to Catullus, though there is no other reason for connecting it with his name. It is published in Anthol. Lat. 1700 Meyer, and by many editors of Catullus among his fragmentary poems. The other two poems are generally acknowledged to be spurious. They are published in Anthol. Lat. 1699, 1698 Meyer, Anthol. Lat. 775, 774 Riese; App. Verg. 6.3, 2 Baehrens; Priap. 86, 85 Buecheler, Priap. 85, 84 Mueller.- But the numbering of the genuine poems as disturbed by these interpolations has become traditional, and is here followed.
