Notes:  "Due to the limitations of HTML encoding and the difficulties of translating original typesetting files, the transliterations from classical Greek to the Latin alphabet which appear here are not only incomplete but also inconsistent. They are intended as no more than a very rough, approximate indication of the printed text, which should be consulted as the authoritative version. Extended passages of classical Greek are represented by graphic images scanned from the print edition. "
