Through his definitve actions 'Augusto definisce non solo come un Primo ma anche come un Ultimo Uomo, definitivo, per Roma. To be 'anti-Augustan' is to pay the price of having to read the texts with the eyes of a delator or a mole, while the 'Augustans' are favoured with a smile and the best seats at an entertainment which, without their knowing it, includes them 'in the scenic action of the poetic language.

From the library of the late Prof. The criterion which guided the studies of the academicians was far from being worthy of unqualified praise, and consequently their work did not always meet the approval of the best scholars who had the opportunity of seeing the monuments. Among these was Winckelmann, who in his letters gave ample notices of the excavations and the antiquities which he was able tp visit on several occasions.

Other notices were furnished by Gori, Symbolae lztteramae Florentznae , , by Marcello Venuti, Descrzzwne delle puma scoperte d' Ercolano Rome, , andSc1p1one Maffei, Tre letlere mtorno alle scoperte d' Ercolano Verona, The excavations, which continued for more than forty years , were executed at first under the immediate direction of Alcubierre , and then with the assistance of the en ineers Rorro and Bardet , Carl Weber and Francesco La Vega. After the death of Alcubierre the last named was appointed director-in-chief of the excavations; but from that time the investigations at Herculaneum were intermitted, and the researches at Pompeii were vigorously carried on.

Resumed in , the excavations at Herculaneum were shortly after suspended, nor were the new attempts made in with the money estowed by King Victor Emmanuel attended with success, beirag impeded by the many dangers arising from the houses built overhea The meagreness of the results obtained by the occasional works executed in the last century, and the fact that the investigators were unfortunate enough to strike upon places already exg ored, gave rise to the opinion that the whole area of the city had een crossed by tunnels in the time of Charles Ill.

And although it is recognized that the works had not been prosecuted with the caution that they required, yet in view of the serious difficulties that would attend the collection of the little that had been left by the first excavators, every proposal for new investigations has been abandoned. The antiquities excavated at Herculaneum in that century ae. They come partly from the buildings of the ancient city theatre, basilica, houses and forum , and partly from the private villa of a great Roman family cf.

Among the best preserved is Leto and Niobe, which has been the subjlect of so many studies and so many publications zbzd. The Vila Suburbana has given us a good number of marble busts, and the so-called statue of Aristides, but above all that splendid collection of bronze statues and busts mostly reproductions of famous'Greek works now to be found in the Naples Museum.

It is thence that we have obtained the reposing Hermes, the drunken Silenus, the sleeping Faunus, the dancing girls, the bust called Plato's, that believed to be Seneca's, the two quoit throwers or discoboli, and so many masterpieces more, figured by the academicians in their volume on the bronzes. But a still further discovery made in the Villa Suburbana contributed to magnify the greatness of Herculaneum; within its walls was found the famous library, of which, counting both entire and fragmentary volumes, papyri are preserved.

Among the nations which took the greatest interest in the discovery of the Herculaneum library, the most honourable rank belongs to England, which sent Hayter and other scholars to Naples to solicit the publication of the volumes. Of the papyri which have been unrolled, have been published Herculanenszum volumznum gaae supersunt Naples, 17 ; Collectzo altera, The names of the authors are in themselves sufficient to show that the library belonged to a person whose principal study was the Epicurean philosophy.
