TWO NOTES BY A. D. NOCK 1. The ASCLEPIUS and Quodvultdeus. My statement (in Festugi?re-Nock, Hermès TrismL;giste, II, 266), "Depuis S. Augustin jusqu'au debut du XIIe siecle, nous n'avons plus de testimonia pour 1'Asclepius" must be modified. The Liber de promissionibus et praedictionibus Dei, ascribed by Cas-- siodore to Prosper of Aquitaine, has a chapter en,titled De sub- 17ersione idolorum et templorum ( III 38; P.L. LI, 833 f-f.). This contains ( I ) a tale of Symmachus and of Eutropius; (2) the sup- posedly miraculous suspension of a chariot in the Serapeum at Alexandria (apparently a variant of a story told by Ruiinus) 1; (3) the mechanical dragon in a cave at Rome; (4) personal memories of the tem,ple of Caelestis at Carthage. Finally we read: novis quoque ipse in quadam parte lvlauritaniae provinciae de spelaeis et cavernis ita antiqua producta simulacra, quae fuerant absconsa, ut omnis illa cum clericis in sacrilegio periurii civitas teneretur. quid vero per ceteras provincias in re hac actum sit, et omnibus notum est et exitus ipsi demonstrant. doluit haec futura Hermes ille Trismegistus, et maerens inter cetera scripsit dicens, Tunc terra ista sanctissima, sedes delu- brorum et templorum, mortuorum erit cadaverumque
