(A short performance, whose reputation exceeds its merit. It holds that “homage” is a custom derived from the ancient Germans; that modern sovereigns add to their titles, “by the grace of God,” because the Saxon hlaford was sacred to the churl; and that the king, instead of the Augustus, is the Fountain of Honour. The author has advanced no evidence to support these assertions.)

Del Mar is heavily referred to in the text of Censorinus. As Bill Thayer says, bibliographies are notoriously riddled with typos, which has also been my experience.
