Notes to the online edition

Please see the introduction for details of the manuscripts.  While the Notitia is found in V, the most important manuscript of the Chronography, a variant text of what is clearly the same material is found independently, under the title of the "Curiosum".

Material in italics is present only in one manuscript of the text.

Two untitled appendices follow the main text in both families of manuscripts, containing further summaries, but also extra information.  I have included these above.

I have been unable to determine what some of the things listed are, but have made use of

R. Valentini and G. Zuchetti, Codice topografico della cittą di Roma, Volume 1. Rome (1940) p. 63 ff. Part XIV with a complete commentary about each entry, for some items.
