In Wyttenbatch's edition of Plutarch, I. p. 322.

Προς τους υποτυχών αν τις έιποι, ,
Θεός δέ σοι πήμ' ουδεν, αλλ' αυτός αυ7,
σύ σου, και η δια την απαιδευσίαν άνοια και
παραφροσν. η. .
" Quibus hoc dicto occurrere non ineptè liceat,
Non tibi Deus nocet, sed ipse tu tibi

Officis, et tua malè instituti recordia." Prof. Eichstädt proposes for aülü to read ou ou; and he states that Plutarch alluded to Sophocles, Ed. Tyr. 387. (Brunck. 379.)

Κρέων δέ σοι πήμ' ουδεν, αλλ' αυτός συ σοι. This is of a better stamp; as is the reference to Simonides, on the same work of Plutarch, p. 315. where, however, Wyttenbach had observed, dictio poetam sapit.

In Plutarch's Amatorius, and in his de Tranquillitate, the Professor cleverly detects a reference to the Bicch. of Euripides, 66.--He adds an emendation or two, and concludes his paper with asserting that a passage in Plutarch's de cohibendo ira may readily be reduced to trimeters, as it is taken froin some comic writer.--It is to be regretted that he has favoured his readers with the lambics.

Alcæi Hymnus in Mercurium, e fida Horatii (O. 1. 10.) versione, quantum fieri poterat, restitutus a G. F. GROTEFEND, Gymnasii Francofurtensis Prorectore. ---Horace's five Latin Sap. phic Stanzas are here translated into what M. GROTEFEND pleases himself with supposing to be five Greek Alcaic Stanzas! This Prorector Gymnasii Francofurtensis will probably be surprised when he is informed that no one of these stanzas exhibits its third verse formed in the mould of Alceus :-" So Grecian, yet so Latin all the while !” In the fragments of Al. ceus, a sufficient number of these third verses is preserved, to assure us that there was invariably an lambus in tertiâ sede, and never a Spondeus.

In the Monthly Review for January, 1798, p. 8. some remarks on this measure were offered to its learned readers ; in which it was proved that in Horace the Fifth syllable was always LONG, and in Alceus always SHORT; or that in the


laster there was an lambus in the third place, and in the former a Sponieus.

GROTEFEND's Alcaic Stanzas.

De Charistiis Romanorum et succedente iis in Ecclesia die Carbes dre vel Epularum S. Petri. Meletema lo. CRISTIANI WERNSDORFII, &c. &c. &c. This paper contains some curious observations, and some display of reading. Why the author, however, made no use, in p. 348, 9. of Valckenaer's learned remarks on the festival of Adonis, we cannot determine. M. WERNSDORF ought at all events to have referred to them, and to have introduced the citation from St. Cyril of Alex. andria. - The annotation of Valckenaer is in his Edition of ten Idyllia of Theocritus, Lugd. Bat. 1772.

We are also presented in this volume with two short papers written in the German language. The first, on the Hecate of the Greeks, proceeds from the pen of Prof. Voss, author of a translation of Homer and Virgil. He endeavours to trace the origin of that deity, which he finds in Thrace, to shew the probable cause of the great variety of attributes bestowed on her, and to reduce them to some sort of unity. He adopts it as a principle, the truth of which is confirmed by the hisa tory of Hecate, whose image Pausanias found still in a sim: ple shape at Agina, that all deviations from the noble figure of man in the representation of deities owe their origin to la. ter mystics and artists; and he considers it as singular that the triple Goddess has never been transformed into one mula tiplied by the sacred numbers seven or nine, or even by a hun. dred; that, though the name of Hecate is often used for Selene, Artemis and Persephone, we never find a triple Selene or Persephone, but often a three-headed Artemis mentioned; and that frequently by the side of Hecate, an Artemis is introduced and likewise three-headed.

The second German paper is a translation of the first Olympic Ode of Pindar, in the metre of the original, by Professot GROTEFEND. If any modern language be capable of reflecting the true image of the Grecian bard, it is the German, which in its whole construction can probably boast of the greatest similarity to the Greek. Who can bear to read Pindar in French ? or can we feel that we read Pindar while we read thyme ? Prof. Voss has the merit of having excited an emulation among his countrymen, for preserving the Greek poets, in translation, as much as possible in their original garb and spirit. M. GROTEFEND has chosen perhaps the most difficult task of a translator, in adhering closely to the rhythm of his original. Without entering into a minute criticism on single passages, we may allow that the version possesses simplicity and harmony, though in several parts of it the energy of the original is loss.
