apparatus Berl. 1851; the smaller with Persius and Sulpicia and select critical notes in Weidmann's series Berl. 1868). A few tracts by Friedländer, who is employed on an edition of Martial, are of value; but his Sittengeschichte almost supplies the place of a commentary both to Martial and Juvenal; the same may be said of Marquardt's Alterthümer and in an inferior degree) of Forbiger's Hellas und Rom (left unfinished by his death at a great age a few months ago).

I have on all the satires collections on the same scale as the fullest here printed and hope to publish as a basis for a commentary on satires II. VI. IX. the substance of ms. notes by the scholars named above and by others (e.g. Casaubon). In course of time, when I have cleared off other arrears, I propose to prepare a critical text founded

, on a new collation of. P (cod. Pithoeanus or Budensis saec. IX, once in the library of Matthias Corvinus, now in the bibliothèque de l'école de médecine at Montpellier n. 125) with the early mss. in this country.

A bibliographical catalogue, with biographical notices, of all English works, printed or manuscript, on Juvenal to the year 1850, a reprint of scattered translations to the end of the 17th century, and a dissertation on Roman satire and satirists', are tasks which I have in view, but cannot promise to undertake for several years. A smaller edition for schools, in three parts, will cost little labour, and may, I hope, be completed by the end of 1879.

1 A learned divine (Keim Gesch. Jesu v. Nazara 1 381) generously plumps up the meagre list: 'ein später römischer Satiriker des 4. Jahrh. Makrobius.' Oddly enough, in the next line the words 'aus Versehen' occur. The source of this Versehen' is all too obvious.

I see

In my notes I have endeavoured at once to meet the wants of English students in general little accustomed to consult original authorities and debarred froin the best and latest books of reference) and also to supply new materials for the grammarian, lexicographer and historian'. Following the steps of Casaubon and Gataker, Scaliger and Hemsterhuis, I have drawn materials from writers, accessible to me, of every race and creed. only a 'riddle in the taste, which, allowing Libanius, lays Chrysostom under ban ; scouring the world for an inscription, while blind to a vast literature ready to hand. Were Philo a pagan, his historical tracts would assuredly rank as priceless evidence respecting the early empire. Even lexicography has suffered by the stigma cast on men, who had served many philosophies before they bowed their necks beneath the cross; for it might then be said, fiunt, non nascuntur Christiani.

I have purposely abstained from consulting any English edition of Juvenal.

1 I know not why Mr A. Palmer (Hermathena 1 391) should suppose that Ov. m. viii 283 had “escaped my notice'. It is printed at length, in both editions, in the note on iv 27, and this note is cited on v 147, the verse which Mr Palmer is discussing; see too Dobree advers. 11 387. The other quotation should be not 'met. x. 38. v. 1' but v 381, which, with this correction, I gratefully accept. If Mr Palmer will consult the ind. under sed, he will see other authorities. He does not observe that Ribbeck corrupts both lines by the same cheap nostrum, nec for sed (iv 27 nec maioris se). Bergk’s warning (speaking of the Teubner Gellius Jahrbb. cXIII 1876 276) is certainly opportune: 'wenn dies so fort geht, so wird, ehe nochmals dreissig jahre verflossen sind, jeder mann von bildung und geschmack sich mit widerwillen von den in Deutschland erschienen neuen ausgaben lateinischer schriftsteller abwenden.'

VITA D. IUNI IUVENALIS

IUNIUS IUVENALIS libertini locupletis incertum filius an alumnus ad mediam fere aetatem declamavit, animi magis

causa quam quod scholae se aut foro praepararet. dein 5 paucorum versuum satura non absurde composita in Paridem

pantomimum poetamque semenstribus militiolis tumentem genus scripturae industriose excoluit. et tamen diu ne modico quidem auditorio quidquam committere est ausus, mox magna

frequentia tantoque successu [bis ac ter] auditus est, ut ea 10 quoque quae prima fecerat inferciret novis scriptis

quod non dant proceres, dabit histrio. tu Camerinos et Bareas, tu nobilium magna atria curas ?

praefectos Pelopea facit, Philomela tribunos. erat tunc in deliciis aulae histrio multique fautorum eius 15 cotidie provehebantur. venit ergo Iuvenalis in suspitionem,

quasi tempora figurate notasset, ac statim per honorem militiae quamquam octogenarius urbe summotus est missusque ad fecturam cohortis in extrema parte Aegypti tendentis. id

supplici genus placuit, ut levi atque ioculari delicto par esset. 20 verum intra brevissimum tempus angore ac taedio periit.

quod non dant proceres, dabit histrio. SCHOL. IV 38 hoc convicium in Flavium Domitianum Titi fratrem Vespasiani filium iactat, qui calvus fuit. propterea 1 quod Iuvenalis sub specie honoris relegatus est ad cohortis curam in Aegypto Hoasa, ubi mortuus est.

MARTIALIS VII 24
Cum Iuvenale meo quae me committere temptas,

quid non audebis, perfida lingua, loqui?
te fingente nefas Pyladen odisset Orestes,

Thesea Pirithoi destituisset amor,
tu Siculos fratres et maius nomen Atridas

et Ledae poteras dissociare genus.
hoc tibi pro meritis et talibus inprecor ausis,

ut facias illud, quod puto, lingua, facis.
