[Reprinted from Stereotype plates.) PREFACE.

a

I HAVE carefully revised the Life and Philosophy of Antoninus, in which I have made a few corrections, and added a few notes.

I have also made a few alterations in the translation where I thought that I could approach nearer to the author's meaning; and I have added a few notes and references.

There still remain difficulties which I cannot remove, because the text is sometimes too corrupt to be understood, and no attempt to restore the true readings could be successful.

GEORGE Long.

1873.
