Weiss 2013: “Author: Anonymous … Juan II allegedly commissioned Mena to expand the poem from 300 to 365 stanzas; only 24 extra stanzas were written. The learned commentary bears some similarites to Núñez's but is expressly not by him. Generally briefer glosses, supplying learned authorities (some Greek), etymologies, and moral amplification.”
