Lysias

Excerpt

The Greek text in this volume is based on the edition of Thalheim (Teubner, 1901) : the emendations which have been accepted from him and other scholars are indicated in the notes as they occur.

The translation is intended to show something of the structure as well as the full sense of the original, so far as English speech will permit, in order to give some impression of the versatile tact with which Lysias adapted his style to the various characters of his clients. The introductions, notes and translations in the excellent edition of MM. Gernet andBizos (Les Belles Lettres, 1924) have been helpful at many points of difficulty or doubt. For more detailed information and discussion than the scope of this volume allows the English reader is referred to Jebb Attic Orators (Macmillan, 1876) and Shuckburgh's edition of sixteen of the speeches (Macmillan, 1895).
