Gibson Prize founded in 1889 by Mrs J. Y. Gibson in connection with Girton College. Much of it has been based upon a study of the original sources, but great help has been gained from modem writers, especially Friedlander. For the section on Asia Minor I am indebted mainly to Professor Ramsay sworks on the subject, which he has made his own. When so much has been written on a period, originality is difficult for those who cannot adduce fresh evidence. The general plan, however, and the concluding section, I can claim for the most part as my own. Also my own reading has furnished the references to the following authors: Horace, Juvenal, Tacitus, Suetonius, the younger Pliny, Philo Judaeus, Dio Chrysostom, Plutarch, and Philostratus. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
