The Writer desires to express his acknowledgments to Professor Plumptre for permission to make use of his translation of these tragedies; and to Mr D'Arcy Thompson for a similar courtesy in the case of his 'Sales Attici.'

Use has also been made of M. Patin's 'Studies on Sophocles,' Mr Jebb's edition of the 'Ajax and Electra,' and the last chapter of Lord Lytton's 'Athens.'

Of the translations, those marked (A.) are by the late Professor Anstice; those marked (D.) are by Dale; and those distinguished by (P.) are from Professor Plumptre's translation, to which reference has been made above.
