φίλοι. Εurip. Suppl. 649. παρών γάρ τους απόντας φύφρανείς. All the MSS. read τους παρόντας. Ιon. 1553. Μη φεύγετ'. ου γαρ πολεμίαν με λεύσσετε. So we venture to read on conjecture. The common reading is het gevo γετε. Herc. 348. Κόσμος δε πέπλων τις όδε νερτέροις πρέπων και The old editions read νερτέροις πίπλων. In a passage from an ancient grammarian quoted by Mr. Gaisford in the work before us, (part 1, p. 75,) we find the following words, Οι δε Ταραντίνοι άποικοί είσι των Ταραντίνων. The last word, as Mr. Gaisford observes, is a slip of the pen for Λακεδαιμονίων.

V. 382. Τις αδικεί σε και του κέχρησαι; λέκτρ' ερας χρηστα λαβείν. Mr. Gaisford has received into the text the emendation of Heath, λέκτρα χρήστερας λαβείν. We feel no doubt that the poet wrote, λέκτρ' ερας χρηστης λαβείν. So Fragm. Inc. 157. Ο μεν γαρ άλλης λέκτρων υμείρει λαβεϊν. Γυναικός 18 understood in both verses.

V. 662. Πού τους Φρύγας λέγουσιν ωκίσθαι, πάτερ. Read που γης without the article.

V. 796. Ως έτυχε Λήδ' όρνιθε πταμένω. Perhaps, “Ως έτεκε Λήδα σ' όρνιθο πταμένω (or πετομένω). See the notes on this passage.

V. 144. Ιδού, σιωπώ, το γαρ αναίσχυντόν με δεϊ, Ψευδή λέγοντα, προσλαβείν τη ξυμφορα. Read interrogatively, το γαρ αναίσχυντον τί δεϊ. Why should I add falsehood to my other evils ?

V. 1359. Ax. Είσορας τεύχη φέροντας τούσδ'; ΚΛ. όναιο των φρενών. ΑΧ. 'Αλλ' όνησόμεσθα. ΚΛ. παίς άρ' ουκέτι σφαγήσεται; We read without hesitation, Αλλ' ονήσομεν σέ.

IPHIGENIA IN TAURIS.
V. 194. 'Εξ έδρος, out of its place, Bacch. 926, 929.

V. 400. Και δονακόχλοα λιπόντες Ευρώταν. Analogy seems to require that we should read δονακόχλοον. .

V. 630. "Αζηλα τους φίλοισι, θνησκόντων φίλων. Read,"Aζηλα τάδε φίλοισι. V. 720. After all, the true reading appears to be, καίπερ εγγύς εστώτος φόνου. If this reading had occurred to us earlier, we might have spared our long remark on this passage. In the quotation from Aristophanes, we now suspect deouévw to be the accusative.

V. 938. We now prefer, Τι χρήμα δράσαι. So Ion. 1347. ΠΥ. Ενθύμιόν μοι τόδε τίθησι Λοξίας. ΙΩ. Τι χρήμα δράσεις, λέγε. πέραινε σoυς λόγους. Here δράσαι, which is proposed by Musgrave, is absolutely necessary.

Before we take our final leave of Jeremiah Markland, we think proper to mention, that if the reader is desirous of obtaining information respecting his life, writings and opinions, Mr. Nichols's · Literary Anecdotes of the Eighteenth Century' may be consulted with more advantage than any other book with which we are acquainted. To the fourthvolume of that work is prefixed a portrait of Markland, engraved, as we infer from the dazzling magnificence of the apparel, from a picture painted before Markland took orders. It is the fashion to censure the foppery of our officers of dragoons. We believe that few of them would burn for so much as this shy scholar, if he actually wore the clothes in which the painter has represented him. * A Note on the submuriate of Lead in our next.
