The papers incorporated in the present volume were written in part during the last few years, in part at a much earlier period. The earlier productions were printed in the proceedings of various Italian societies, or in separate pamphlets for private distribution, and in either case came before a very limited public. I am led to offer this volume to the English-speaking public, both because it presents practically unpublished material, and because of the close connection between the various subjects of which it treats, since all were suggested by my researches in preparing my History of Magna Graecia and Sicily and my History o Rome. E. P. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
