Safineh-ye sha’ran-e qadim (The anthology of the ancient poets) is a name given by the editor of this collection of poetry to MS No 651 preserved at the Senate Library This anthology, of which the transcription date has disappeared, was copied from an older anthology, probably in 7th-8th centuries A.H./13-14 centuries C.E .It contains a good many verses by a number of Persian speaking poets up until late 7th/14th century. One of the merits of this collection is its coverage of the poetry composed by unknown poets, of whom no other poetry has as yet been found in other sources.
This anthology has been edited with utmost care and patience by Mohammad-Reza Zia, the fine scholar, and published in the “Series of Persian Texts” in 1391 Sh,/ 2012 CE..Unfortunately, despite all the editor’s care in recording the verses of the anthology, there have occurred errors, which the present writer has examined in this article and suggested alternative readings for them.
