This thesis consists of an edition of the Aratea of Germanicus. In its preparation twenty eight manuscripts and many early editions were collated (most of them for the first time) and their relationships established as far as possible. In the construction of the text of the poem the manuscript evidence was evaluated and a large number of conjectures sifted. The text is followed by an English translation and a commentary which discusses the text and the sources of the poem, defends the text printed and comments on other matters such as the author's style and imitations of earlier Latin poets. There is a discussion in the introduction of the sources, date and authorship of the poem.
