y \ COPYRIGHT, 1922BY WILLIAM HATHORN MILLSFirst EditionGEORGE BELL « SONSLONDON, ENGLANDMAR -6 1922Z?^P r e fa c eCublished by George Bell and Sons,London, England, in 1878, these balladshave been out of print for nearly fortyyears. I now re-publish them in the hope thatthey may again serve the purpose which they
originally served — i. e. that, in running com-mentaries on the text of the original accountsin Herodotus and Xenophon, they may meet,so far as they go, the difficulty that younglearners experience in grasping the subject-matter of their translation-work. The generalidea ,of them was of course suggested byMacaulay's Lays of Ancient Rome, but, sofar as the spirit of them is concerned, thereis more in them of Scott than of Macaulay.In those far-off days I tested the ballads byactual use, and was quite convinced of thevalue of the principle on which they werewritten. So forth they fare again.W. H. M.ContentsMarathon 7Thermopylae ------ 17Mantinea 33MARATHONAge shakes Athena's towerbut spares gray Marathon.
