Wesseling (1692-1764) is remembered today chiefly for his major edition of Diodorus Siculus. The present miscellaneous work includes the author's thoughts on Greek and Roman writers and on numismatics. The writer e.g. emends Asconius Pedianus, Gellius, Hesychius, Isaeus, Plato and Sophocles; defends Petronius and explicates Scipio and euphorion; discusses several Roman republican coins.
