This line of Muretus is here quoted from an incorrect edition. The falfe quantity in it, however, was fufficiently obvious; but as fuch mistakes in profody are fometimes to be met with among modern writers of Latin verfe, (especially the Poeta Italorum,) I paffed over the prefent imperfection, without pointing it out to the public. Yet perhaps we fhould read, with an older copy of this author, printed at Paris in his lifetime:
Tetras in antiquum &c,
i. e. quaternio elementorum, the four elements out of which the univerfe was made. MALONE.
614. at the end of Note 4. add, STEEVENS.
