PREFACE.

THE text of Plato followed in this book is that of the Zurich edition of 1851. The points in which I have departed from it are not numerous, and are chiefly ones of punctuation and spelling. I have however added the references to the sections of Stephanus (which are not given in the Zurich text), and have verified from Stephanus' edition the references both to sections and pages. In quoting from or referring to other dialogues I have always used Stallbaum's text of 1850.

An essay on the text of the Laches by Dr. Michael Gitlbauer,* Professor at Vienna, suggested some disquieting ideas as to the genuineness of a considerable portion of the text. But I did not think it suitable to the character of my book to depart from my intention of abstaining as far as possible from textual criticism ; and those who have read the Professor's treatise will, I think, allow that his suggestions, ingenious as they all are, and plausible as many of them seem, are at least not such as to be adopted in a school edition.
