iv                    PREFACE. 
The first two books, and portions of the third, eleventh, 
and fifteenth, exist only in an Epitome, of which both the 
date and author are unknown. It soon, however, became 
more common than the original work, and eventually in 
a great degree superseded it. Indeed Bentley has proved 
that the only knowledge which, in the time of Eustathius, 
existed of Athencus, was through its medium. 
Athen.Tus was also the author of a hook entitled, "On the 
Kings of Syria," of which no portion has come down to us. 
The text which has been adopted in the present transla-. 
tiou is that of Schweighauser. 
C. D. Y.
