Página 104 - Not Babylon, Nor great Alcairo, such magnificence Equall'd in all their glories, to enshrine Belus or Serapis their gods, or seat Their kings, when Egypt with Assyria strove In wealth and luxury.
Página 175 - This turn of the voice is marked in this manner ( v). But it is foolish in us to compare Drusus, Africanus, and ourselves, with Clodius ; all our other calamities t were tolerable, but no one can patiently bear the death of Clodius.
