DIALOGUES

UPON THE

USEFULNESS

OF

ANCIENT MEDALS.

ESPECIALLY IN RELATION TO THE

LATIN AND GREEK POETS.

Quoniam hæc ratio plerumque videtur
Tristior esse, quibus non est tractata, retroque
Volgus abhor ret ab hac: volui tibi suaviloquenti
Carmine Pierio rationem exponere nostram,
Et quasi musão dulci contingere melle,
Si tibi forte animum tali ratione tenerem.

LUCRETIUS.
