On Powers, or the Magistracies of the Roman State (De Magistratibus Republicae Romanae)
|Author: ||Bandy, Anastasius|
“The translation presented here is faithful and accurate so as to express Lydus’ intended thought. A loose or free translation frequently can be faulty and deceptive, not
representing the thought of the author but merely that of the translator. Lydus’ often
long and protracted sentences reflect that found in the works of many Greek historians.
I have tried to solve satisfactorily all passages difficult to comprehend”
– Prof. Anastasius C. Bandy,
