J. C. FIELD readers could (and, as we shall see, did) think of the group as 40, whether by approximation or because the group includes some characters who ought to be discounted: Arthur because it might be thought that the leader of a group cannot simultaneously be a member of it, Merlin because he is not a knight, and Leodegan because as a royal ally of Arthur’s his membership of the group, if it exists, must be temporary.
31). 16 A good many of the other names in the Vulgate Suite are obscure too, particularly those towards the end. It looks as if the author had decided on the number of knights required to make up the military entourage of a great king, then set about supplying the appropriate number of plausible Arthurian names, but found it increasingly difficult. When the reviser of the Post-Vulgate Suite was composing his new transitional episode he too must have felt that it was desirable to give a list of knights fighting for Arthur, and decided to base it on the list later in the Vulgate.
D, however, does not say there were 26 knights in the band that fought for Arthur: it says that there were 35. If that is correct, and there is no reason to doubt it, nine names have somehow been lost. It may be possible to identify them. The last two characters in the Post-Vulgate (PV 22–3) are clearly those who appear in the Vulgate as 17 and 27, and the number of names between 17 and 27 is nine. If Vulgate names 18–26 are inserted between D’s names 22 and 23, D has the 35 names it claims to have.
