Description: Zoilus (400 - 320 BC) was a Greek grammarian, (in)famous for his relentless criticism on Homer. This apparently gained him the reputation for being a bit of a nag, hence probably this "dedicatory" canon at the beginning of the publication, where the "author" (composer?) defends himself against future critics of his work.

Es soll keiner Sach verlachen,
er könn dann solche besser machen
wie da mein Sprichwort laut
leichter veracht
als nach gemacht.
