A treatise on forensics of uncertain date, with 43 entries. A certain Zhao Yizhai 趙逸齋 is sometimes given as author or editor. Although the original text is no longer extant, a significant part of its contents seems to have been drawn from Xiyuan jilu (q.v.), and much of the rest is found in Wang Yu’s Wuyuan lu (q.v.). The Ming and Qing versions of Pingyuan lu still found at Beitu and in some collections have been shown to be no more than the text of j. 2 of Wuyuan lu.
