opinion in his own days was favourable to his claims.In later days, too, Mr. Holden, who has busied himself with Plutarch, says Amyot's version is more scholarlike and correct than those of Langhorne or Dryden and others. At the time when he was translating the Lives into French two scholars of high reputation were, independently of each other, translating them into Latin. Xylander's versions appeared in 1560, those of Cruserius were ready in the same year, but were not published till 1564. They still hold their place and enjoy consideration. Now, they both make their compliments to Amyot. Xylander, indeed, has only a second-hand acquaintance with his publication, but even that he has found valuable: After I had already finished the greater part of the work, the Lives of Plutarch written by Amyot in the French language made their appearance. And since I heard from those who are skilled in that tongue, a privilege which I do not possess, that he had de

Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PORTA NOMENTANA (search)
PORTA NOMENTANA a gate in the Aurelian wall from which the VIA NOMENTANA (q.v.) issued (DMH), 75 metres to the south-east of the modern Porta Pia, which was erected by Pius IV in 1564. It retained its ancient name until the thirteenth century (T in loc.); it occurs under the form of Numantia in Magister Gregorius (JRS 1919, 19, 46). It had two semi-circular towers, the left-hand one of which, in brickwork attributable to Aurelian, stands on a square brick tomb, while the right-hand one, removed in 1827, stood upon the tomb of one Q. Haterius (CIL vi. 1426; see SEPULCRUM Q. HATERII). The analogy of the porta Salaria suggests that the curtain had three large windows over a single arch; and it is the only example of one of Aurelian's original gates which has not been re-faced. Immediately to the south-east there is a small postern (LF 3 ; Jord. i. I. 355; T iii. 8; PBS iii. 38; x. 20; Discovery vi. (1925), 293-295; BC 1927, 55, 56).

address to the Queen, entreated her to choose a husband, so as to secure a Protestant succession to the crown. She returned an evasive answer. She gave encouragement to several suitors, after she rejected Philip, among them Archduke Charles of Austria, the Duke of Anjou, and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The latter remained her favorite until his death in 1588. During the greater part of Elizabeth's reign, Cecil, Lord Burleigh, was her prime minister. For more than twenty years from 1564 England was at peace with foreign nations, and enjoyed great prosperity. Because of the opposite interests in religion, and possibly because of matrimonial affairs, Elizabeth and Philip of Spain were mutually hostile, and in 1588 the latter sent the invincible Armada for the invasion of England. It consisted of over 130 vessels and 30,000 men. It was defeated and dispersed (Aug. 8), and in a gale more than fifty of the Spanish ships were wrecked. On the death of Leicester the Queen showed
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Hawkins, Sir John 1520-1595 (search)
Hawkins, Sir John 1520-1595 Naval officer; born in Plymouth, England, in 1520; carried a cargo of 300 slaves from Guinea in 1562, and sold them in Cuba. In 1564 he attempted to capture and enslave a whole town near Sierra Leone, and narrowly escaped being captured himself and sold into slavery. Hawkins was filled with the most pious reflections at his escape, and in his narrative (which is the first English narrative of American adventure printed) he says: God, who worketh all things for the best, would not have it so, and by Him we escaped without danger. His name be praised for it. His second cargo of slaves he sold in Venezuela and elsewhere. In this second voyage he coasted the peninsula of Florida, and gives a fairly detailed account of it in his narrative. He made a third voyage in 1568, and in spite of the King of Spain's prohibition, sold his cargoes of slaves to advantage. In the port of San Juan de Ulloa he met a Spanish fleet much stronger than his own. He made

Laudonniere, Rene Goulaine de 1562-1586 Colonist; born in France; first came to America in 1562 with the Huguenot colony under Ribault.
