Archaionomia

ARCHAIONOMIA. The name of a collection of Saxon laws, published during the reign of the English Queen Elizabeth, in the Saxon language, with a Latin version, by Mr. Lambard. Dr. Wilkins enlarged this. collection in his work, entitled Leges Anglo Saxonicae, containing all the Saxon laws extant, together with those ascribed to Edward the Confessor, in Latin; those of William the Conqueror, in Norman and Latin; and of Henry I., Stephen, and Henry II., in Latin.

Without wishing to deny the possibility, likelihood even, that some manuscripts no longer extant were available to the Parkerian scholars in the late sixteenth century, I wonder if the inclusion of |Elizabethan Anglo-Saxon' in Lambard's Archaionomia may not owe something to the fact that the pages facing the Latin of the Quadripartitus would otherwise have been wholly or partly blank whenever no genuine Old English text was available.
