series of annotated texts; that of Blass, Themistokles und Perikles, Leipzig, 1883, in the Teubner series of annotated texts; and the same editor’s Aristides und Cato, Leipzig, 1898, in the same series. All these editions bring Fa and S into rightful prominence as a basis for the text. This has been done also by Holden, in his edition of the Themistocles (Macmillan, 1892).

The translations of the Themistocles, Aristides, and Cimon have already appeared in my “Plutarch’s Themistocles and Aristides” (New York, 1901), and “Plutarch’s Cimon and Pericles” (New York, 1910), and are reproduced here (with only slight changes) by the generous consent of the publishers, the Messrs. Charles Scribner’s Sons. The translations of the Camillus, Cato, and Lucullus appear here for the first time. All the standard translations of the Lives have been carefully compared aud utilised, including that of the Lucullus by Professor Long.
