"bilia quædam inſtituta, nec in vulgus nota, quæ quidem talia ſunt, ut, qui ea rectè adhi-
"bere voluerit, ſæpe in conſiliis, in legibus, in judiciis commodare potuerit.” Nich.

"For even though they do not contain full descriptions of politics, they nevertheless have certain noteworthy institutes, not known in the common tongue, which indeed are such that he who wishes to use them correctly, may often find pleasure in legal opinions, in laws, in judgments." Niels Krag in the preface to Heraclides Ponticus's De politiis libellus (Little Book on Politics).——"]
