Ουδέ γε όπως άφρων έσται ! ψυχή επειδάν του άφρονος
σώματος δίχα γένηται, ουδε τούτο πέπεισμαι. 'Αλλ' όταν

eikos autóv eiva..-Cyrus, apud Xenoph.

“De tels faits, dont l'univers est tout plein, embarrassent
plus les esprits forts qu'ils ne le témoignent."-Bayle, Dict
Histor. Majus, Note D. Maldonat. G.
