Correspond to Livy, xliii. 19. 13–20. 4 and 23. 8 (though Livy omits most of the contents of 9. 1–8); hence the three previous excerpts in de legat. gent. will go: (a) 1. 1–9 and 2. 1–8 in res Italiae of Ol. 152, 3 = 170/69; (b) 5. 1–6, which corresponds to Livy, xliii. 17. 7–9, in an earlier part of the section on the war with Perseus (as before—see p. 23—P. continues to run res Graeciae and res Macedoniae together). Since 3. 1–4. 13 (from de legat. ) corresponds to Livy, xliii. 17. 2–6, it must immediately precede 5.

1–7) comes before Philopoemen's death. For detailed discussion of the chronology of the deaths of Philopoemen, Scipio, and Hannibal see the commentary on 12. 1– 14. 12. If Steph. Byz. v. Γαλάδραι should be emended to give a reference to book xxiii (Schweighaeuser, v. \), this may come in the res Macedoniae of either Ol. 149, 1 or Ol. 149, 2 (see Büttner-Wobst, iv. 152 in app. ). Schweighaeuser (v. 54) attributes fg. 112 to res Asiae of Ol. 149, 2; it could refer to Pharnaces. 6. BOOK XXIV This probably contained the events of Ol.

Since Cretan affairs come before res Asiae in any year, 14. 1–4 must belong to xxviii, despite the fact that the next excerpt (18. 1) has a marginal note λο κη, which might suggest that it was the first passage taken from book xxviii. 15. 1–3 precedes 16. 1–17. 15 in de legat. gent. and is probably rightly placed after rather than before 14. 1–4, since the attack on Apollonia is less likely [26] to have happened once Cydonia was in the hands of the Pergamene general Leon (15. 3). 16. 1–17. 15, on Rhodian affairs, follows 15.
