Note 1

Description (in the form of a letter to Pirckheimerus) not so much of Gallia Belgica as of Germania Inferior, more especially the region of Rhine and Moselle, in the time of the Roman Empire. It is presented on the title-page as an editio princeps.

Note 2

The treatise is formally presented as a separate edition, with its own title-page and numeration, but forms in fact a kind of appendix to the 1584-edition of P. Divaeus, De Galliae Belgicae antiquitatibus liber I (seeno. cp012505). See also no. cp011769.
