THE NOTES accompanying this Edition were compiled for the use of those of my own pupils who are candidates for the Oxford Local Examinations: they are published because I know that the want of a school-edition of this treatise has been very generally felt. They are mainly taken from sources obvious and easily accessible, and make no pretensions to original or extensive research. I have endeavoured to make them as brief, as exact, and as complete as possible, bearing in mind, first, the disinclination of young pupils to consult books of reference for themselves, however accessible ; and, secondly, the increasing number of students of English Literature to whom the Classical Dictionary is not a familiar book in daily use.
Much help has been received from the notes to Holt White's very elaborate Edition (London, 1819).
