Subject:        Martius or Marcius

Dear Shaksper Listmembers:

Is there a reason for preferring either Caius Marcius or Caius Martius
as the original name for Coriolanus? I have found both forms in various
editions of the play. I don't have a folio facsimile to consult on this
question, but since the folio is the earliest extant copy of
Coriolanus-the copy text for any edition, I'm not sure that consulting
the folio would help. Why does Martius/Marcius vary among edition? And,
by the way, how would one pronounce Marcius? Responses will be
appreciated.
