Notes

*Stevenson 1904, p. 201, open to grave suspicion; Darlington 1955, p. 5, authentic basis possible; Watkin 1956, p. 212 and n. 55, cited; Whitelock 1966, p. 103, highly suspicious; Finberg, ECW, no. 196, authentic; Fleming 1985, p. 252; Edwards 1988, pp. 121-3, probably authentic; Dumville 1992, p. 41 n. 57, if a forgery then a most ingenious one.
