OBJECTS.-The Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies was founded in 1879 for the following objects:-

I. To advance the study of Greek language, literature, and art, and to illustrate the history of the Greek race in the ancient, Byzantine, and Neo-Hellenic periods, by the publication of memoirs and unedited documents or monuments in a Journal to be issued periodically. II. To collect drawings, facsimiles, transcripts, plans, and photographs of Greek inscriptions, MSS., works of art, ancient sites and remains, and with this view to invite travellers to communicate to the Society notes or sketches of archæological and topographical interest.

To organize means by which members of the Society may have increased facilities for visiting ancient sites and pursuing archæological researches in countries which, at any time, have been the sites of Hellenic civilization.

Application for membership, or for information about the Society, should be addressed to the Secretary, at 19 Bloomsbury Square, W.C. 1.

The Journal of Hellenic Studies and other publications of the Society are issued by Messrs. Macmillan & Co., Ltd., and can be purchased from any bookseller, the published price to non-members being 30s. net per volume or 15s. net each part, Members are entitled to receive a copy of the Journal on publication during their membership, and can purchase back volumes at the subscription rate of 21s. per annum.

Members also have the use of a well-equipped library at 19 Bloomsbury Square and of a large collection of lantern-slides illustrative of Classical Studies.

BOOK VI.

VI. 6. 8. In the year 386 B.C. a combination of dangers, especially the rumour of a Latin revolt, led the other Military Tribunes, on the advice of the Senate, to place the direction of affairs wholly in the hands of the aged Camillus, who happened, according to the tradition, to be one of their number. Camillus accepts the responsibility with modest diffidence, but promises to do

his best:

ingens inde ait onus a populo Romano sibi, qui se dictatorem iam quartum creasset, magnum ab senatu talibus de se iudiciis eius ordinis, maximum tam honorato collegarum obsequio iniungi.

So read both Ver. and the Nicomacheans, save that the latter give less correctly a senatu (for ab sen.) and honoratum for honorato; and that the feeblest of them, Upsaliensis, being naturally puzzled by eius ordinis, substitutes (with the best intentions) concordiis, meaning no doubt concordibus!

Madvig rightly saw that dictatorem was a mistaken gloss, since Camillus had not been made dictator, and, if he had been, it would not have been the populus by whom he was so creatus. But the scribe of Upsaliensis felt, though he failed to remedy, the fatuity of eius ordinis immediately after ab senatu.1 Karsten proposed to cut it out; and he is now strongly confirmed by the fact that the line in the Einsiedlensis which contains the words is some nine letters too long, and projects beyond its neighbours.

If honorato, the reading of Ver. in the last clause, is right, it must mean 'laden with compliments,' instead of the simpler honorifico (cf. 27. 10. 6 senatus quam poterat honoratissimo decreto adlocutus eos). But it is not quite clear why in the Nicomachean archetype this should have been changed to honoratum,

former would defend eius ordinis by the id and eius of 6. 34. 5, which, however, seem to us necessary in that sentence.
