NOTE.

 

 

These pages are much indebted to M. Guizot's volume entitled 'Menandre; Etude Historique, &c.:' also to Mr Dunlop's 'History of Roman Literature.'

No attempt has been made to avoid roughness in the metre of the translations from Plautus and Terence; they can hardly be, in this respect, more irregular than the originals.
