Note 075
From Chapter 44 of the Decline & Fall

Ancient Greek (General receivers) was a common title of the Greek miscellanies (Plin. Praefat. ad Hist. Natur.). The Digesta of Scaevola, Marcellinus, Celsus, were already familiar to the civilians: but Justinian was in the wrong when he used the two appellations as synonymous. Is the word Pandects Greek or Latin — masculine or feminine? The diligent Brenckman will not presume to decide these momentous controversies (Hist. Pandect. Florentine. p. 200-304.).
