by the necessary amount of excision, or by the supposition of some
lines having fallen out. It will be seen, on examination, that the diffi-
culties of 4. 8. 17 have been exaggerated; and, at any rate, in the
absence of any indication of such a quaternary division, either in the
pauses of the Odes themselves, or in the grammatical and metrical
writers (who are usually keen-eyed for 'laws' in the greater poets),
the chief recent editors have not thought it necessary to alter the Ode
in obedience to the canon. Steiner pointed out that, whatever may
have been the case with the Odes which are composed in couplets,
there are but five other Odes besides 4. 8 (omitting, again, 3. 12)
which are μovóorixa, or of uniform metre, and that this is too small an
area for such an important induction.

The variation is shown in the Collation only when this mark is absent.
