But things are now so changed that the English language of to-day cannot provide a seemly garb for Plutarchs ancient reasonings. To say in modern English that five is the odd number most connected with marriage, is to ex)ose the Pythagorean doctrine of numbers to modem ridicule. But when Philemon says, Now among al odde numbers it seemeth that Cinque is most nuptial, even the irreverent modem cannot fail to feel that Cinque was an eminently respectable character, whose views were strictly honourable and a bright example to other odde numbers.

Again, Philemons insertion of the words it seemeth makes for reverence. The insertion is not apologetic- nor does it intimate that the translator hesitates to subscribe to so strange a statement. Rather, it simimons the reader to give closer attention to the words which are about to followwords of wisdom such as is to be found nowhere else but only in the fountain of all knowledge, Greek. Insertions and amplifications are indeed characteristic of Philemon as a translator.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
