Wr. Colson sintroductory book has already brought the beginner to the outbreak of the Peloponnesian War. For the first six ears we hardly once find A thens and Sparta within actual grip of each other, and the account is more or less a series of episodes, deeply moving in themselves, but of little consequence to the main issue. Two of these episodes are here treated. The narrative of the fate of Plataea naturally separates itself from the other chapters describing the period. The account of the Plague runs here as in the complete text, save that we have thought well to prefix the 3-itli chapter to it. Textual criticism is, of course, no part of our object. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
