Clem. Al. paed. 11 1 $ 11. str. vi 6 & 32. Among the sects which abstained from flesh were Ebionites (Epiphan. haer. xxx 15 p. 139o. 18 p. 142d. 19 p. 143b. 22 p. 146a), Encratites (Iren. i 28=30 § 2 in Eus, iv 29 2. Aug. haer. 25), Aerians (acc. to Philastr. 72. not acc. to Epiph. 75 § 3 fin. cf. Aug. haer. 53), Tatians (Philastr. 48. some make them the same as the Encratites), Priscillianists (Aug. 70), Patricians (Aug. 61). Clem. Al. str. VII § 33 approves abstinence as a discipline of the body: táx' áv TIS των γνωστικών και ασκήσεως χάριν σαρκοφαγίας απόσχοιτο και του μη σφριγαν περί τα αφροδίσια την σάρκα. ib.

Aristoxenus, on the other hand, states that beans were the usual food of Pythagoras (Gell. iv 11). The same absti. nence was found in Egypt, and in Rome it formed a part of the process of purification (Plut. quaest. Rom. 95). Hippolytus (philosophum. 1 2 p. 13 72-84 D) says that Zoroaster taught this abstinence to Pythagoras; the grounds alleged are puerile, as all explanations have been. See Bayle n. I. Paus. vi 15 § 4 the mystae of Demeter at Pheneae regarded the bean as un katapov. Iambl. v. P. $ 191 Pythagoreans chose · rather to die than to march across a bean-field. $ 193 when Dionysius asked the reason, Myllias replied: They chose rather to die than trample on beans, I would rather trample on beans, than divulge their reason.' ib. & 194 (Menage on DL. vin $ 50 cites a like story of Theano) Timycha, wife of Myllias, bit off her tongue to shew that no torture could extract the secret from her.

2 CROCODILON ADORAT Max. Tyr. VIII 5 after blaming the Egyptian law: • They honour an ox and bird and goat and the creatures of Nile, ων θνητά μεν τα σώματα, δειλοί δε οι βίοι, ταπεινή δε η όψις, αγεννής δε ή θεραπεία, αισχρά δε ή τιμή. αποθνήσκει θεός Αίγυπτίοις και πενθείται θεός και δείκνυται παρ' αυτούς ιερόν θεού και τάφος θεού ... παρα δε ΑίγυπTlous lobtipov &XEL Oelov tiuñs kai sakpúwr,' tells a story (Holyday) of an Ægyptian woman, which nourish'd a young crocodile: whereupon the rest of the Ægyptians thought her a most happy woman, and the nurse of their God, and not a few sought to please both Her and her Darling. He adds, that this woman had a young son about the age of her God, whose play-fellow he was; and that, whiles for tenderness of body the Godcrocodile seem'd tame, all was well: but that when strength came to him, his nature came to him, and (though he had spoil'd his own sport] he eat up his play-fellow: that the mother notwithstanding, though indeed wretched, rejoiced at the death of her child, as most happy, being so honoured as to be made the sacrifice of her house-God.'

SOLDIERS enjoy an almost entire exemption from punishment (1—34), are not harassed by protracted law-suit. (35—50), and hold property in their own right, while their fathers yet live (51—60).

Schol. ‘ista a plerisque exploditur, et dicitur non esse Iuvenalis.' On the other hand it is quoted as Juvenal's by Servius (Aen. I 16 ver. 6. II 106 ver. 42) and Priscian (VIII 31 and 82 ver. 2). The opinions of modern critics are collected by Ruperti and Heinrich; add, in favour of the genuineness of the satire, K. F. Hermann, Düntzer, W. E. Weber, 0. Jahn. That the work is imperfect is evident: for we have no complete list of the communia commoda, which were but the beginning of the proposed theme (7): the instances of special good fortune, alluded to in verses 1–6, are not touched upon. The objections which have been taken to the language are frivolous in themselves, and easily outweighed by the excellence of 4 seq. 9 seq. 24—34 cet. F. Bücheler (Rhein. Mus. XXIX 1874 636. cf. Ribbeck der echte . . Juvenal 175 seq.) explains the abrupt termination of the fragment. nam in medio fere corpore saturarum codices Pithoeanus et Sangallensis triginta versibus (VII 129–158) quae olim adscripta fuere scholia omittunt. casu aliquo Iahnius ea in communi archetypo intercepta existimavit, ego librorum naturae non video quid sit magis consentaneum quam totum interiisse folium. tricenum igitur versuum foliis archetypum compositum puto. iam numera inde a vii 159, ut qui primus fuerit in aliquo folio, versus saturarum reli. quos, adice singulos praepositos saturis aliamque ab alia discernentes, praeterea duos quibus quarti libri et quinti exordia indicantur, neve unum illum neglexeris post ix 134 sublatum ab editoribus sed antiquitus traditum, et summam cognosces fieri versuum 2040 folia inplentium 68 sine ulla deductione aut accessione. itaque qui hodie saturis finem facit versus idem extremus fuit in archetypi folio, nec plures ad nos pervenerunt ideo quod sequentia codicis folia aut unum saltem perierant."
