The commentary [of Omnibonus (Ognibene) da Lonigo] on the Satires of Juvenal: prologue beg. 'Quoniam in exponendis auctoribus'. At the foot of the first page of the text (fol. 3) are the arms of John Tiptoft, earl of Worcester (d. 1470), with crest, between two satyrs. The book was no doubt copied in Italy for that nobleman, and given by him (see below) to the old library of the University of Oxford.
