I shal seke Truth erst , or I see Rome
I shal seke treuthe eft erst · er I se Rome
I shal seken trewþe / tryst[fyr]stF.5.468: It is not clear what the immediate scribe intended here. The likely explanation is that a scribe changed Bx's erst to synonymous fyrst which then was written in the metathetic form fryst from whence it was corrupted to nonsensical tryst. / er y seke Rome.
