Festugiere’s translation of Porphyry Ad Gaurum has arrived at my local library. I have discovered that it is open until 7pm tomorrow, so I may be able to get it then.
I’ve also got two modern translations of Juvenal. The one by Peter Green is pretty slangy, and I disliked it a lot. The one by Neil Rudd seems sound enough. But both put their notes at the end, which means reading with fingers stuck in the book!
Perhaps we should have a Campaign for Real Footnotes!
I’ve also enquired whether it would be possible to increase the margin on the Eusebius book so that the trim size is 6.14×9.21″. Probably it is not, but if it was, we could use the thinner white paper. In a book of 430 pages, thickness of the paper is a real issue. But who knows? Maybe the creme paper looks better anyway.
