Available only for academic teaching and research provided that this header is included in its entirety with any copy distributed. This edition may not be reproduced or used elsewhere without the explicit permission of the TLH project. For enquiries, please contact us.


Additional text supplied by the translator is enclosed in square brackets.

Encoding principles:


TLH has not made any alterations to the text of the printed edition.


The electronic edition represents the text of Carl Marstrander’s printed translation.


Quotation marks enclosing direct speech, whether single or double in the printed source, are encoded in TLH with the <q> tag. The same tag is also used in situations where direct speech has not been explicitly marked by the use of quotation marks.


End-of-line hyphenation of the printed edition has not been retained, and wherever a page-break occurs in the midst of a hyphenated word, the break is marked after the end of the hyphenated word.
