Editorial Reviews

'The translation itself goes a long way towards catching J.'s mixture of rhetoric and wit. It is lively and taut ... translation is excellent, not only the best available in English but also good to read, no bad thing as most of its readers will be Latinless.'F. Jones, University of Liverpool, The Classical Review, Vol. XLII, 1992
