Bibliography references:

There is no customary system of abbreviations which is accessible both to specialists and to non‐specialists. On the one hand, ‘Plutarch, Comm. not 1071f’ is not perspicuous to philosophers not familiar with ancient texts. On the other hand, writing out in English the titles of every ancient work that is referred to would have made the notes too lengthy and clumsy. I have therefore used, in the footnotes, forms of abbreviation familiar to specialists, and add here a list of explanations of these for the non‐specialist.
