Available only for academic teaching and research provided that this header is included in its entirety with any copy distributed. This edition may not be reproduced or used elsewhere without the explicit permission of the TLH project. For enquiries, please contact us.
Due to current browser limitations, certain characters in printed editions may not always be similarly displayed in the electronic version. In such cases, the following representations have been chosen for display purposes:
- characters with punctum delens or other marks indicating lenition (this applies to f, s, m and n) are displayed with following h and underlining: thus fh, sh, mh and nh
- insular ampersand (Tironian et) is displayed as &
This text contains editorial emendations of MS readings. For the mark-up of these emendations, see sub heading Correction below. In the HTML format, these emendations are encoded as hyperlinks. Clicking the links will display the emendations in a pop-up window.
To facilitate searching, macrons used to indicate long vowels in the printed edition have been omitted from the html display.
In her printed edition, Scarre has in some places proffered emendations of MS readings. These emendations are encoded in TLH by means of the <sic> tag with two attributes, namely the “corr” attribute, indicating the suggested emendation, and the “resp” attribute, indicating editorial responsibility. Editorial responsibility is indicated in TLH as follows: “p” indicates print editor and “e” the editor of the electronic edition. TLH has not made any alterations to Scarre’s text.
This text has not been normalised.
Quotation marks enclosing direct speech, whether single or double in the printed source, are encoded in TLH with the <q> tag. The same tag is also used in situations where direct speech has not been explicitly marked by the use of quotation marks.
End-of-line hyphenation of the printed edition has not been retained, and wherever a page-break occurs in the midst of a hyphenated word, the break is marked after the end of the hyphenated word.
- The <expan> tag is used to encode text printed in italics to indicate editorial expansions of manuscript abbreviations.
- The <supplied> tag is used to encode additions to the text made by the print editor or the editor of the electronic text. The resp attribute indicates the source of the supplied text: p indicates print editor and e electronic editor.
- The <add> tag is reserved for additions made to the text in the original manuscript prior to the publication of modern editions.
