Note 079
From Chapter 22 of the Decline & Fall

Julian, Epist. xxxv. p. 407-411. This epistle, which illustrates the declining age of Greece, is omitted by the Abbé de la Bleterie; and strangely disfigured by the Latin translator, who, by rendering Ancient Greek 'tributum', and Ancient Greek 'populus', directly contradicts the sense of the original.
