ment therefore founded by Mr. Malone on the latter fuppofi-
tion (p. 300) must be confidered as erroneous, whilst I alone

fect the date allotted by him to the piece in question.

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 verse, (especially the Poeta Italorum,) I paffed over the prefent imperfection, without pointing it out to the public. Yet perhaps we should 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.
