By Pierre d'Hancarville, according to Barbier, who gives Naples ca. 1771 as probable place and date for the ed. in French only, rather than French and English. Title of present ed. has been changed from that cited by Barbier (Veneres et Priapi uti observantur in gemmis antiquis), and so is probably later
