Occasional brief gaps occur in the printed edition owing to the obscurity of the original text. These gaps have been preserved in the TLH edition. Text of which the translator was unsure is marked (?), following the printed original.

Encoding principles:


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


The electronic edition represents the text of Eleanor Knott’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.


Hyphenation as in the printed original.
