Plutarch's Lives, written at the beginning of the second century A.D., is a brilliant social history of the ancient world by one of the greatest biographers and moralists of all time. In what is by far his most famous and influential work, Plutarch reveals the character and personality of his subjects and how they led ultimately to tragedy or victory. Richly anecdotal and full of detail, Volume I contains profiles and comparisons of Romulus and Theseus, Numa and Lycurgus, Fabius and Pericles, and many more powerful figures of ancient Greece and Rome. The present translation, originally published in 1683 in conjunction with a life of Plutarch by John Dryden, was revised in 1864 by the poet and scholar Arthur Hugh Clough, whose notes and preface are also included in this edition.

Excerpt from Plutarch's Lives, Vol. 2 of 10: With an English Translation; Themistocles and Camillus, Aristides and Cato Major, Cimon and Lucullus As in the first volume of this series, agreement between the Sintenis (teubnei', 187 3-1875) and Bekker (tauchnitz, 1855 - 1857) texts of the Parallel Lives has been taken as the basis for the text. Any preference of one to the other Where they differ, and any departure from both, have been in dicated. The more important ameliorations of the text which have been secured by collations of Codex Parisinus 1676 (f') and Codex Seitenstettensis (s), haye been introduced. The relative importance of these mss. Is explained in the Introduction to the first volume. No attempt has been made, naturally, to furnish either a diplomatic text or a full critical apparatus. The reading which follows the colon in the critical notes is that of the Teubner Sintenis, and also, unless otherwise stated in the note, of the Tauchnitz Bekker.
