Publication Details: Oxford: e typographeo Clarendoniano, impensis Stephani Fletcher, 1715

Notes: The second edition (first 1696), and one of several variant printings - in this one the Latin translation is at the foot of the Greek text instead of on facing pages. The editors, John Freind (1675-1728) and Peter Foulkes (1676-1747) were undergraduates at Christ Church assigned to edit the text by Dean Aldrich; both went on to other careers - Freind a physician, Foulkes in the clergy - and so never reproduced the success of this popular and useful edition.
