LanguageIn Latin, with a few words in Greek
Three poems in black and red ink in an italic hand (likely that of Johannes Cnipius) on a paper bifolium, in which Cnipius mocks Andreas Saxo. The first poem, beginning Odi sacrilegam perversum rellicuisse, seems to be mostly the work of Saxo, in red ink, with additions by Cnipius in black ink. The second poem, which Cnipius titles Specimen tou barbarismou Andreae Saxonis, dated 1557, is similarly a mix of words from Saxo and Cnipius in red and black. The third poem, titled Ode lyrica in Andream Saxonem, is by Cnipius, in black with red initials, and is a satire using the Alcaic meter of Horace's Ode 1.38. The end of the first and third poems are signed I.C.A. for Iohannes Cnipius Andronicus.
