page 60 note 1 Philostratus, ed. Kayser, , Vitae Soph. I. 24.

page 60 note 2 Westermann in the Didot edition of Philostratorum et Callisti Opera (Paris, 1849) revised the older Latin version (Preface, p. ii).

page 60 note 6 Marcus was a contemporary of Hadrian; Philostratus lived from about 170 till 244 A.D. (Wright, op. cit. pp. ix–xi).

page 60 note 7 They are discusssd by Sophocles, , Greek Lexicon of the Roman and Byzantine Periods, New York and Leipzig, 1888, p. 3, by Thumb, op. cit., pp. 29–37, and in my paper mentioned above, pp. 145–152.

page 60 note 8 Mnemosyne, 1873, p. 529. In the eighteenth century Wesseling made a similar conjecture, προβαλ⋯ μ⋯ν μελτ⋯σogr;;μαι Wright, receiving Cobet's reading into the text, translates accordingly.

page 60 note 9 So, for instance, Xenophon, Anabasis III, I, 26: a man who spoke with a Boeotian accent or pronunciation. Apollonides was not a true Boeotian (Anabasis III, I, 31). Sturz in his Lexicon Xenophonteum is hardly right in translating ‘ rustico vocis sono utens, pleno gutture loquens.’

page 60 note 10 Of course Cobet, my venerated teacher at Leyden University, knew all this as well as any one else, but probably he thought Philostratus capable of any solecism. This one, however, does not occur in his works ; I am not able to cite from late authors another instance of the supposed use than Anacreontea 11, 6 (ed. V. Rose): , where, as Mehlhorn remarks, the foursyllable word serves to save the metre.
