Not illustrated. 1889 edition. Excerpt: ...30. 7, multis potitus spoliis ut ex tanta ccede, where the Greeks might use ola eUis. At other times the ut is used in a restrictive sense, as vir ut inter Mtolos facundus, xxxu. 33.9. ceterse alt., briefly put for the height of the wall in other places, constr. prcegn. obsistebant. The plural verb with inventus is common in Livy, cf. rv. 56. 6, omnium populorum inventus Antium con-tracta, ibi castris positis hostem opperiebantur, so Vii. 2. 5. 8. nee quicquam..., ' did not allow the besiegers to approach anywhere in safety,' a favourite form of Sallust. Jug. 66, nihil intactum neque quietum pati; also 88.

Often as here he says, like Cicero, agi coeptum, impediri ccepta res, and nearly always with fieri, using a double passive, but at times he has phrases like templum cedificari ccepit. Cf. Madvig Kleine Phil. Schr. p. 864. 3. Abundabat multitudine. Cf. vi. 24. 2, multitudo sup-peditabat, and v. 38. 4, tantum superanti multitudine. 4. itaque is generally taken with the next sentence, but the asyndeton of ccepti sunt, non sufficiebant would be very abrupt. W. proposes to omit sunt, and thinks the passage unfinished...
