ÂÊÎÔÛ âêîôû [ y] [)A] [)E] ... [)a] [)e] [)i] [) i] ["anceps" vowel, either long or short]

The "root" and "therefore" (three dots) symbols are shown as [Rt] and [therefore]. Reversed "C" is [C] (in the numeral CI[C] = M).

Except for [Linenotes], [Footnotes] and the symbols noted above, all single brackets [ ] are in the original. Double brackets [[ ]] and braces { } were added by the transcriber.

In some passages, individual letters or syllables within a word were printed in boldface. These are shown with braces as f{a}cio. Elsewhere, boldface is shown with marks. Other aspects of formatting, including line numbers, are detailed at the end of the e text.]
