SOTTUS

SOTTUS
apud Theodulfum Aurelian. Episc. l. 3. carm. 1.
Utque sit hic aliud, nil nisi Scottus erit.
Cui si litterulam, quae est ordine tertia, tollas,
Inque secunda suo nomine forte sedet.
Hinc enim Sottus exit, h. e. stolidus, bardus, Gall. Sot. Cavilli genus est, quo Ioannem Scotum seu Erigenum notari credunt nonnulli; qui, cum Caroli Calvi mensae assideret interrogatus a Rege, Quid distat inter Sottum et Scottum, respondisse legitur, Mensa tantum, apud Simeonem Dunelmensem A. C. 844. A Syriaco Sote, i. e. stultus, vocis originem arcessit Dan. Heinsius in Marcum c. 2. Car. du Fresne Glossar.
