Moritz Haupt (with Ovid's "Halieutica" and Grattius) 1838, and R. Stern, with Grattius (1832); Italian translation with notes by L. F. Valdrighi (1876). The four eclogues are printed with those of Calpurnius in the editions of H. Schenkl (1885) and Charles Haines Keene (1887); see L. Cisorio, "Studio sulle Egloghe di Nemesiano" (1895) and "Dell' imitazione nelle Egloghe di Nemesiano" (1896); and M. Haupt, "De Carminibus Bucolicis Calpurnii et Nemesiani" (1853), the chief treatise on the subject. The text of the "Cynegetica", the "Eclogues", and the doubtful "Fragment on Bird-Catching" were published in Vol. II of "Minor Latin Poets" (Loeb Classical Library with English translations (1934).

Cynegetica (Nemesianus) It is uncertain whether Nemesianus never finished the poem, or whether it was finished but that sections have subsequently been lost. Martin takes the view that the poem was finished, but lost in transmission, referring to the fact that Vospiscus mentions it as a literary achievement (assuming that an unfinished work would not be so mentioned) and by reference to Haupt's textual analysis (based on the fact that the final leaf of a manuscript is filled completely).
Cynegetica (Nemesianus) Toohey notes that the Cynegetica displays the typical features of the tradition of ancient Greek and Latin didactic poetry: an addressee, detailed technical instructions, narrative or mythological panels, the use of hexameter verse and a likely original length of over 400 lines.
Cynegetica (Nemesianus) The Cynegetica is generally considered to have been transmitted in an incomplete state. Reasons for this conclusion include the fact that its proemium/introduction seems disproportionately long (102 out of a total 325 lines), and the fact that Nemesianus (at lines 237-8) indicates that he will give a further description of a Tuscan dog (but such subsequent description does not appear in the remainder of the surviving text).
Cynegetica (Nemesianus) The following structural division of the poem is proposed by Toohey
