Abstract

The chronological memorandum which is peculiar to the tenth-century manuscript (Chartres, no. 98) o£ the Historia Brittonum designated Z by Prof. Mommsen (M. G. H., Chronica Minora , l, p. 119) and printed first by M. Duchesne (Revue Celtique, Vol. XV, pp. 174--197, Avril 1894), has already received a considerable share of attention. It may be found in Mommsen, op. cit. p. 172, note l, or in the Revue Celtique, l c. p. 177; and the emendation of it that I suggest is a necessary one, appears at the end of this note. It was clearly the intention of the author of the memorandum in question to provide four data: namely, l, the year in which he believed that the English invaded Britain; 2, the year in which 'libine abas iae' discovered the date of that invasion; 3, an approximation to the number of yeärs which embraced the two events; and 4, the age of the moon on the first day of January in the year in which the discovery was made. 1.
