In this paper the problem of the small oscillations of the Jacobi ellipsoids is solved, and all the characteristic frequencies belonging to the second and the third harmonics are found. In particular, the variation, along the Jacobian sequence, of the characteristic frequency with respect to which the Jacobi ellipsoid becomes unstable is exhibited.
