Lat. parallel: (Dist. IV, 9) Quod tibi suspectum est, confestim discute, quid sit / namque solent, primo quae sunt neglecta, nocere ‘Whatever is suspect to you, immediately test what it is; for those things which are at first ignored are often accustomed to do harm’. Unusually, 1199ˣ and 624 present identical text for this st., with fairly minor variants occurring in the other mss.
