The Abbreviations list will be found in the Apparatus.

1. Line numbers for all quotations of SGGK are from the T-G-D 1967 edition reprinted in 1968 with corrections.

2. Numerous scholars have noted and discussed the commercial imagery in SGGK. The following discussions have been most helpful to me: Burrow 1965:83, 134; Heinzelman 1980:36, 286-87; Pace 1969:404-11; Tamplin 1969:408, 418-19; Taylor 1971:1-15.

3. For an informative history of the word `economy,' see Singer 1958: 29-57; for the meaning of dispensatio, frequent and crucial in Scripture, see Chenu 1968 :168-70.

4. On the role of superbum Ilium (Aeneid 3. 2-3) in SGGK, see David 1968: 402-9; Kaske 1979; Silverstein 1965 :189-206.

5. This formulation indicates my pervasive debt in reading the poem to Benson 1965 and Burrow 1965.
