Ho PREFACE As the text of the former edition of this book is in the present volume rehandled in many places, and enriched with new materials, the former preface has become antiquated, and is therefore not here reprinted. This volume is the second of the series which I have written on the social life of the Greeks, and its natural sequel is the volume entitled The Greek World under Roman Sway, A fourth volume yet remains to be written, which will be devoted to the period of Greek thought and letters from Hadrian to Julian. But even if this work be never accomplished, the other three volumes stand independently as studies of three distinct periods of great importance and interest The special title of the present volume means to include all the life of Greek-bom orG reekspeaking people, wherever they dwelt.
