See the outlines of the Roman hierarchy in Cicero (de Legibus, ii.7, 8), Livy (i. 20), Dionysius Halicarnassensis (1. ii. [c. 63, sqq,] p. 119-129, edit. Hudson), Beaufort (Republique Romaine, tom. i. p. 1-90), and Moyle (vol. i. p. 10-55). The last is the work of an English whig, as well as of a Roman antiquary.
