of the pages and partiallya in his numeration of chapters.

In Book III the headings and divisions need not trouble us, though I have indicated them in the textual notes. They are really quite useless, being introduced at haphazard and rarely applying to more than a few sections of the matter they might be expected to cover. Fortunately Mangey ignores them in the heading of his pages and Cohn also, as well as in his numeration of chapters, though both insert them in the body of the text. It surely cannot be supposed that they, or indeed any of these headings, are due to Philo himself.

Coh’s Numeration of Chapters—The Special Laws I.

The point at which each fresh numeration begins is indicated in the notes, but to facilitate reference a summary is here appended.
