Notes and essays by Bret Mulligan
Professor Mulligan would like to extend his abiding thanks to his colleagues at Haverford College for their support, in particular Sydnor Roy, who allowed me to evesdrop on her Elementary Latin students as they read this commentary. Darcy Krasne and her students gave the completed text an exact review in the Spring of 2016. Other instructors too numerous to thank by name have made suggestions and caught mistakes. Students in Latin classes at Wheaton College and Haverford College made suggestions on early versions of the commentary and proved by experience those aspects of Nepos’ text that needed clarification. Haverford students Florencia Foxley (’13), Eliana Kohrman-Glaser ('15), Carman Romano ('16), Emma Mongoven (’14), and Hannah Silverblank (’12) made significant contributions to editing the commentary, as well as developing vocabulary lists and other supplemental resources. Laurie Allen (Coordinator for Digital Scholarship and Services), Michael Zarafonetis (Digital Scholarship Librarian), Margaret Schaus (Lead Research and Instruction Librarian), and Julie Coy (Visual Resources Librarian) contributed indispensable expertise throughout.
