TUPET, Cicéron, Discours. Tome XIII, 2: Sur la réponse des haruspices. Texte et traduction (Coll. Budé). Paris, 'Les Belles Lettres', 1966. 83 (46 double) p. . Grimal's edition of the invective against Piso follows to some extent the excellent text of Nisbet (Oxford 1961), at the same time using-perhaps too strongly-his own conservative judgment on several crucial points. In addition to the clear and accurate apparatus a number of readings are discussed in the very full 'notes suppl6men- taires'. The text of Cicero's oration about the advice of the karusfiices has been rather neglected in the last decades. Now for the first time we have a separate edition which, however, does not differ much from the text edited by A. Klotz in igig. Sometimes a fuller explanation in the rather laconic apparatus criticus would have been welcome. A fluent French translation completes both editions. DEN HAAG, Zilverschoonstraat 36 J. W.

Pr. DM 19,50. , , , . -L ,,. In this booklet Seel returns to the problems that had occupied him as long ago as 1930 (Sallust von den Briefen ad Caesayem zur Coniuyatio Catilinae) and 1943 (Die Invektive gegen Cicero, Klio Beiheft 47). Now he reacts to various more recent developments concerning the vexed problem of the dubia Sallustiana. He again defends the authenticity of the Epistulae, against Fraenkel and Syme, and the spuriousness of the Invectiva, against Gelzer and the vain attempts of Walter Schmid. I fully agree with his position, but feel rather baffled by the way he expounds it. His line of thought winds round and round, subtilizing, qualifying the same ideas over and over. Sometimes he seems to get lost in contemplation and immaterial speculation. There is little system and matter to guide the reader through his argument. He is too far from brevitas Sallustiana to suggest real congeniality with his subject, though he clearly loves his Sallust. And the high quality of this thinking cannot be doubted. There are certainly things a reader will remem-
