Excerpt from Plutarch's Lives, Vol. 8 of 11: With an English Translation; Sertorius and Eumenes; Phocion and Cato the Younger As in the preceding volumes of this series, agree ment between the Sintenis (teubner, 1873 - 1875) and Bekker (tauchnitz, 1855 - 1857) editions of the Parallel Lives has been taken as the basis for the text. Any preference of one to the other, and any important departure from both, have been indicated. An abridged account of the manuscripts of Plutarch may be found in the. Introduction to the first volume. None of the Lives presented in this volume are con tained in the two oldest and best manuscripts - the Codex Sangermanensis (ss) and the Codex Seiten stettensis (s), or in the excellent Paris manuscript No. 1676 Their text therefore rests principally on the Paris manuscripts Nos. 1671, 1673, and 1674 (agb). No attempt has been made, naturally, to furnish either a diplomatic text or a full critical ap paratus. For these, the reader must be referred to the major edition of Sintenis (leipzig, 1839 - 1846, 4 voll., 8vo), or to the rather inaccessible text of the Lives by Lindskog and Ziegler, in the Teubner.
