1 XLII. There were commotions] “Motus erat.” “"Motus is also used by Cicero and Livy in the singular number for seditiones and tumultus. No change is therefore to be made in the text."” Gerlach. “"Motus bellicos intelligit, tumultus; ut Flor., iii. 13."” Cortius.
3 Caius Muræna in Further Gaul] “In Ulteriore Galliâ C. Muræna.” All the editions, previous to that of Cortius, have in citeriore Galliâ. " But C. Muræna," says the critic, " commanded in Gallia Transalpina, or Ulterior Gaul, as appears from Cic. pro Muræna, c. 41. To attribute such an error to a lapse of memory in Sallust, would be absurd. I have, therefore, confidently altered citeriore into ulteriore." The praise of having first discovered the error, however, is due, not to Cortius, but to Felicius Durantinus, a friend of Rivius, in whose note on the passage his discovery is recorded.
