LACTANTIUS, DIV. INST. 6.18.15-16 BY R.M.OGILVIE "... noceat nemini nisi lacessitus iniuria." o quam simplicern veramque sententiam duorum verborum adiectione corrupit ! quid enim opus fuerat adiungere "nisi lacessitus iniuria"...? Dr. Shackleton Bailey (Vig. Chr. 14 (1960), 168-9) has suggested that because Cicero added three words (nisi lacessitus iniuria) trium for duorum should be read in the text of Lactantius. In such calculations, however, Lactantius appears to ignore conjunctions, cf. 3.9.4-6: Anaxagoras, cum ab eo quaereretur cuius rei causa natus esset, respondit "coeli ac solis videndi" ... videamus in tribus verbis quot et quanta peccaverit. There are actually four words here but ac is ignored for these purposes. Duorum is furthermore confirmed at 6.18.6 by the restatement at 6.18.26 duobus igitur verbis duas virtutes detraxit.
