Oxford (Uri, Catal. MSS. Orient. Bibl. Bodl. p. 135, codd. 567, 570), and apparently in no other European library. The latter of these hISS. seems to have been copied from the former by Jac. Golius, and contains only the six last books; the other contains the whole work. (See London Medical Gazette for 1844, 1845, p. 329.) There were more than one edition of this treatise; the first was written during Galen's first visit to Rome, soon after the beginning of the reign of M. Aurelius, about A. D. 164; the last some time before the same emperor's death, A. D. 180. (Galen, De Administr. Anat. 1.1, vol. ii. p. 215, &c.) 5. *Peri\ *)Ostw=n toi=s *Ei)sagome/nois, De Ossibus ad Tirones (vol. ii.). The work contains a tolerably accurate account of the bones, though in some parts it appears clearly that he was describing the skeleton of the ape. 6. *Peri\ *Flebw=n kai\ *)Arthriw=n *)Anatomh=s, De Venarum et Arteriarum Dissectione (vol. ii.). 7. *Peri\ *Neu/rwn *)Anatomh=s, De Nervorum Dissecti

bicus, praefectus urbi at Rome, where Justin then was. Neander adopts the opinion maintained formerly by Valesius, that this Apology (placed in the older editions before the longerone just described) was addressedto Antoninus Pius: but Eusebius (Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 4.17, 18), and Photius (Bibl. cod. 125), among the ancients; and Dupin, Pagi, Tillemont, Grabe, Ruinart, Ceillier, Maran, Mosheim, Semisch, and Otto, among the moderns, maintain the opposite side. Otto thinks it was written about A. D. 164; others place it somewhat later. Scaliger (Animadv. in Chron. Euseb. p. 219), and Papebroche (Acta Sanctorum, Aprilis, vol. ii. p. 106), consider that this second Apology of Justin is simply an introduction or preface to the first, and that the Apology presented to Aurelius and Verus has been lost; but their opinion has been refuted by several writers, especially by Otto. Two Fragmenta, given by Grabe in his Spicileg. Saecul. ii. p. 173, are supposed by him to belong to the second Apology,
Macri'nus Roman emperor, April, A. D. 217--June, A. D. 218. M. OPELIUS (OR OPILIUS) MACRINUS, afterwards M. OPELIUS SEVERUS MACRINUS, at whose instigation Caracalla was assassinated, when marching to encounter the Parthians, was a native of Caesareia in Mauritania, and was born of very humble parents, in the year A. D. 164. Having been recommended to the notice of Plautianus, the all-powerful favourite of Septimius Severus, he was admitted into his employment, and narrowly escaped being involved in the destruction of his patron. [PLAUTIANUS.] Having subse. quently received several appointments of trust in the imperial household, he was at length named praefect of the praetorians, by Caracalla, and discharged the duties of that high office with the greatest prudence and integrity, whenever he was permitted to follow the dictates of his own inclinations uncontrolled. The death of Caracalla took place on the 8th of April, A. D. 217 [CARACALLA], and on the 11th Macrinus, who had hitherto
