known to be caesuras by reason of their frequency, and breaks at certain other points being known to be diaereses by reason of their infrequency, we are able to distinguish between the two classes and so to identify the feet. To be sure, the breaks between two syllables are now and then determined by special conditions; however, cases of this kind are not sufficiently numerous to obscure the operation of the law just mentioned. The results of the investigation follow. A. The Eleven-syllable Alcaic. (a) Only three verses begin with a quadrisyllable. (6) No verse begins with two dissyllables. (c) Words end 199 times with the first syllable, 291 times with the second, 308 times with the third, and 53 times with the fourth. Therefore, the third syllable does not conclude a foot. (d) The first four syllables are characteristically a diiamb of the form (only nineteen verses begin_u_). (e) The remaining syllables fall consistently into Ionic feet, one pure and one broken, the fixed break after the fifth syllable thus being a caesura. (ƒ) This analysis accords with the view of Hephaestion, Ench. xiv. 5. G. — B. The Nine-syllable Alcaic. (a) No verse begins with a quadrisyllable. (b) No verse begins with two dissyllables. (c) Words end 84 times with the first syllable, 83 times with the second, 259 times with the third, and 51 times with the fourth. Therefore, the third syllable does not conclude a foot. (d) The first four syllables are characteristically (only ten verses begin_ ~ _). 511_ (e) The second four syllables also conform to a diiamb. (ƒ) The remaining syllable, it is argued, is hypermetric, making the transition easy from the ascending rhythm of this verse to the descending rhythm of the clausula.-C. The Ten-syllable Alcaic. (a) No verse begins with a hexasyllable. (b) No verse begins with two trisyllables. (c) Other grounds are found for taking this verse, with Hephaestion, Ench. vii. 10. G, as logaoedic.

In short, the paper supports the view that verse A is an Epionic Trimeter Catalectic, verse B an Iambic Dimeter Hypercatalectic, and C a logaoedic verse in the shape of a Dactylotrochaic Dimeter.
