In his preface (M. Annaeus Lucanus: De bello civili. Bibliotheca Teubneriana. Stuttgart, 1988; 1997), D. R. Shackleton Bailey promises to provide the readers with an edition of Lucan which is based on Housman's text and contains certain improvements. In this short paper I would like to confine myself to the discussion of only two problematic passages, which might illustrate that instead of the rationalization we should attempt to find out about the manuscript tradition by examining it rather than labelling it suspicious right away.
