Excerpt

This book owes much to the following, from whosetranslations I have been generously permitted to quote:Mr. P. E. Matheson (Epictetus, The Discourses and the Manual), Mr. John Jackson (The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius), Professor T. G. Tucker (Plutarch, Select Essays, vol. i), Mr. A. O. Prickard (Plutarch, Select Essays, vol. ii), the late ProfessorPhillimore (Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana), Messrs. H. W. and F. G. Fowler (The Works of Lucian). It is a specialpleasure to thank two of my New College tutors, Mr. Mathesonand Mr. Prickard, who have thus added to the many debtswhich I owe them. I have also to thank Sir William Whitlafor kindly reading my proofs. All the works mentioned aboveare published in the series of Oxford Translations by theClarendon Press, which, with its usual generosity, permittedme to use them. In my own renderings unimportant passagesand allusions obscure to English readers have occasionallybeen omitted.

This book was commenced and finished in a new home. Ifa dedication had seemed appropriate, I should have inscribedit to the Senate, the Teaching Staff, and the Students of theQueen's University, Belfast, and to those many members ofa hospitable people who welcomed a stranger.
