In preparing this new edition, I have incorporated all the additions and alterations which are introduced in the fourth edition of the German ;some of which, especially in the first volume, are of considerable importance, such as the fuller view given of the constitution and functions of the senate, the earlier paragraphs of the chapter on Religion, and the note on the history of the Greek alphabet at p. 281. I have also embraced the opportunity of correcting various errors of my own or of the printer, that had formerly escaped notice ;and I have subjected the translation particularly in the earlier portion to careful revision, so as to make the rendering more accurate and consistent, and in not a few instances, I trust, more idiomatic. Glasgow College, October, 1868. In the ffth edition of the first volume, which Dr. Mommsen has recently sent to me, he has made no change of any moment, except the insertion of a note on the newly discovered inscription of iE miliusP aulhis, which will be found at the end of Vol. II. of theE nglish edition.
