Side 554 - The multitude of subjects of an inferior rank was uncertain and fluctuating. But, after weighing with attention every circumstance which could influence the balance, it seems probable that there existed, in the time of Claudius, about twice as many provincials as there were citizens, of either sex, and of every age; and that the slaves were at least equal in number to the free inhabitants of the Roman world.
Side 440 - Victory; a majestic female standing on a globe, with flowing garments, expanded wings, and a crown of laurel in her outstretched hand.
Side 391 - The splendid and popular class was composed of the advocates, who filled the Forum with the sound of their turgid and loquacious rhetoric. Careless of fame and of justice, they are described, for the most part, as ignorant and rapacious guides, who conducted their clients through a maze of expense, of delay, and of disappointment; from whence, after a tedious series of years, they were at length dismissed, when their patience and fortune were almost exhausted.
Side 461 - Athenian Letters, or the Epistolary Correspondence of an Agent of the King of Persia, residing at Athens during the Peloponnesian War.
Side 9 - AG ! [f the motion was less sudden, but of the same species, WAG. If made with force and a great effort, HWAG. These are varieties of one word, originally used to mark the motion of fire, water, wind, darts.
Side 405 - ... divinities, to whom they ascribed all perfections. A fluid named Ichor supplied the place of blood in the veins of the gods. They were not capable of death, but they might be wounded or otherwise injured. They could make themselves visible or invisible to men as they pleased, and assume the forms of men or of animals as it suited their fancy. Like men they stood in daily need of food and sleep. The meat of the gods was called Ambrosia, their drink Nectar. The gods when they came among men often...
Side 451 - A monster, having the head and breasts of a woman, the body of a dog, the tail of a serpent, the wings of a bird, and the paws of a lion.
Side 142 - Greco-Gothic style. After the dismemberment of the Roman empire, the arts degenerated so far, that a custom became prevalent of erecting new buildings with the fragments of old ones, which were dilapidated and torn down for the purpose. This gave rise to an irregular style of building, which continued to be imitated, especially in Italy, during the dark ages. It consisted of Grecian and Roman details, combined under new forms, and piinl up into structures wholly unlike the antique original-.
Side 306 - ... sometimes rises to considerable grandeur of sentiment and imagery. In variety and versatility his lyric genius is unrivalled by that of any poet with whom we are acquainted; and there are no marks of inequality or of inferiority to himself. Whether his odes be of the moral and philosophic kind; or the heroic; the descriptive; or the amatory, the light, and the joyous ; each separate VOL.
Side 450 - The Amazons were no doubt mythical beings, although said to be a race of warlike women, who lived near the river Thermodon in Cappadocia. A nation of them was also located in Africa. They are said to have burnt off their right breast, that they might use the bow and javelin with more skill and force ; and hence their name, 'siuutuns, from a and pato;.
