Types of clausulae that Quintilian uses, counted!

Quintilian in his Book IX of the Institutio discusses many rhytm and meter patterns. The last/first 2 or 3 feet of each clause, are called clausulae. Joseph Gladisch in his 1909 dissertation, did an amazing analysis of the first 3 books of the Institutio, and surveyed them all. See below for the summary table!
