Table of Contents:
1 His age and country are uncertain. We learn, however, from Chapter 55 of this Book, that he flourished before the burning of the Temple of Diana at Ephesus, B.C. 356. He is frequently mentioned in the classical writers. See also B. vii. c. 39.
2 He includes, probably, under this name both Asia Minor and Syria. See a similar passage in Livy, B. xxxix.
3 This passage is rejected by Sillig as a needless interpolation.
4 Asia Minor.
5 King of Pergamus.
6 Over King Antiochus.
7 He alludes to the destruction of Corinth, by L. Mummius Achaïcus.
8 A drinking cup with handles, sacred to Bacchus. See B. xxxiv. c. 25.
10 In allusion to the plebeian origin of C. Marius, who was born at the village of Cereatæ, near Arpinum. It is more than probable that the story that he had worked as a common peasant for wages, was an invention of the faction of Sylla.
11 "Ille arator Arpinas, et manipularis imperator."
