CONSTANTINE AND ARETE. Seep. 217.
We are indebted for the following recension of Constantine and Arett to Mr. Sophocles of Harvard College. It is constructed from Fauriel's text, com­bined with a copy in Zambelios's *Aio-para ArjpoTucd, and with a version taken down from the recitation of a Cretan woman. The translation is by the skilful hand of Professor Felton.
. We may notice by the way that several versions of this piece are given by Tommaseo, in his Canti Popo-lari Toscani, etc. iii. 841.
