APPENDIX. We also take this opportunity of submitting to the consideration of our readers a few additions to our remarks on the three tragedies of Euripides edited by Markland, and of correcting some errors which we have detected in the review of that publication which appeared in our last number.

SUPPLICES.
V. 21. So Phαn. 1692. Τώδ' εκτάδην σοι κείσθον αλλήλοιν πέλας.

V. 87. We now prefer, Τίνων γόον τ' ήκουσα, both as nearer to the common reading, and as a better reading in other respects.

V. 120. Τούτους θανόντας ήλθον εξαιτων πόλιν. Read, εξαιτών πάλιν. So Esch. Suppl. 345. Αιτούσι μη 'κδώς (or μη 'κδούς) παισιν Αιγύπτου πάλιν.

V. 220. Our remark on this passage, although very just, is not original. The substance of it may be collected from Markland's commentary. The same observation applies to our remarks on vv. 258, 732, and perhaps on some other passages.

V. 273. Τέκνων τε θνατων κομίσαι δέμας, και μελέα 'γώ. Τέκνων τεθνέωτων Μarklandus, τεθναότων Μusgraτius. G. Euripides, to the best of our recollection, does not use either τεθνεώς or τεθναώς. In the present passage, we suspect that he wrote, Τέκνων διαθέντων. Δμαθείς signifies killed or dead. See Alc. 195. Ιph. Τ. 199, 229. Tro. 175.

V. 408. Το πλείον. Compare ν. 379. See also Ρorson ad Phan. 612.

V. 453. Τερπιας τυράννους ήδονας, όταν θέλη, Δάκρυα δ' ετοιμάζουσι. Ιdem ac si scripsisset, Δάκρυα δε τους γονυσι, τel τούς τεκούσι. Μ. We read, Δάκρυα δε τους διδούσι. Διδόναι is a very common word for giving daughlers either in marriage or concubinage.

V. 642. Read with Markland, Tην τ' αμφί Θησέως πράξιν. So Esch. Prom. 701. Τον αμφ' εαυτής άθλον εξηγουμένης.

V. 1077. Μετέλαχες τύχας Οιδιπόδα, γέρον, Μέρος, και συ [και] πόλις έμα τλάμων. We have added a syllable on account of the metre.

V. 1097. Read: "Η πρός μέλαθρα τούδε Καπανέως μόλω, “Ήδιστα πρίν η ιδείν, ότ' ήν παίς ήδε μοι, ('Αλλ' ουκέτ' έστιν) ή γ' εμήν γενειάδα Προσήγετ' αεί στόματι, και κάρα τόδε Κατείχε χειρούν; Formerly delightful to behold.

V. 148. “Αλις αλγίων πάρεστί μοι. Pro πάρεστί μοι cold. Α. Β. μου πάρίστι. Μ. This variety leads us to suppose, that μου is an interpolation. Read, "Αλις τώνδ' άλγέων πάρεστι. So ν. 86. Θανούσα τωνδ' άλγέων λαθοίμαν. Ηippol. 366. Ω τάλαινα τωνδ' άλγίων. Αdd. Tro. 579.

V. 1221. In our remark on this passage (p. 4.55, 1. 5) έφυσε is a slip of the pen for έσπειρε. In the same page read όφελε, ώφελε and "Ωφελε.

IPHIGENIA IN AULIDE. V. 99. έπεμψα προς δάμαρτα την εμήν, Πέμπειν 'Αχιλλεί θυγατέρ' ως γαμουμένην. Μarkland proposes στέλλειν instead of πέμπειν. The poet certainly wrote άγειν. The cominon reading was caused by έπεμψα in the preceding verse. A few examples will sufficiently elucidate this matter. Soph. Αj. 330. Φίλων γαρ οι τοιοίδε νικώνται λόγοις. Every MS. of Sophocles, and every edition prior to that of Brunck, reads νικώνται Ρ 3

φιλοι.

we find

φίλοι. Εurip. Suppl. 649. παρών γάρ τους απόντας ευφρανείς. 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 des deve γετε. Herc. 548. Κόσμος δε πέπλων σίς όδι νερτέροις πρέπων και The old editions read νερτέροις πέπλων. In a passage from an ancient gram marian quoted by Mr. Gaisford in the work before us, (part 1, p. 75 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, déveçce χρήστ' έρας λαβείν. We feel no doubt that the poet wrote, λέκτρ' ερας χρηστης λαβείν, So Fragm. Inc. 157. ο μεν γαρ άλλης λίκτρον εμείρει λαβεν. Γυναικός is understood in both verses.

V. 662. Πού τους Φρύγας λέγουσιν φείσθαι, πάτερ. Read τω γής without the article.

V. 796. Ως έτυχε Λήδ' όρνιθι πταμένω. Perhaps, Ως κεκι Λήδα σ' όρνιθι πταμένω (or πετομένω).

See the notes on this passage. V. 144. Ιδού, σιωπω. το γαρ αναίσχυντόν με δεϊ, Ψευδή λέγοντα, προσ. λαβεϊν τη ξυμφορα. Read interrogatively, το γαρ αναίσχυντον τί δεϊ. Why škmld 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 σί.

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

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

V. 650. "Αζηλα τους φίλοισι, θνησκόντων φίλων. Read, 'Αζηλα τάδε φίλοισι.

V. 720, After all, the true reading appears to be, καίπερ εγγύς εστώτος Póvou. 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 deouéve to be the accusative.

V. 938. We now prefer, Τι χρήμα δράσαι. So Ion. 1347. ΠΥ. Ενθύμιόν μοι τόδε τίθησι Λοξίας. ΙΩ. Τί χρήμα δράσεις, λέγε. πέραινε στους λόγους. Here apãras, 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 fourth volume 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.
