Orpheus, an heroic figure, leaning upon his

it is the meaning of the charming fable, that tlie

f;ivages affembled around him, and liftened with

pleafure to his lefions of wifdom and humanity.

St. yi}ithony o( Padna is faid to have performed

a much more extraordinary miracle, for, according

to the legend, even the fifli, genenilly believed

to be deaf, forfook the deep and fwam to

the furface to hear his fermons. But to judge

from what remains to us of the writings both of

the one and the otlier, the fermons of St. Anthony

are not equal to the hymns of Orpheus,

which adds confiderably to the miracle.

From the bipenna, or double-edged battle-axe

of the Amazons, we fliall derive Ibme .advantage in

afccrtaining the country which they inhabited.

According to the telHmony of fable and ancient

hifiory, as often as they are mentioned by the ancients,

they are faid to come from Afia Minor, from

tlie North, from Thrace, from beyond the Danube,

irom the country of the Sarmates, from the Eof-

]>!iorus or borders of the Black Sea ; that is, from

tlie north-eafl; of Europe, which the ancients very

frequently comprifed under the vague denomination

of Scythia ; and it is very remarkable that,

even in thefe days, the Heydukes of Poland, as

well as the national cavalry of Hungary and Poland,

and the Tartars of BalF.irabia and the Crimea,

ilill ufe the battle-axes with a double edge, nearly

of the fame lliape with thofe which the ancients

reprefent the Amazons to have had. They were

nfed either as a warlike weapon, much more terrible,

and making greater havock than the fabre, or

as a mark of honour and diftinélion.

But, the quefiion is, were there ever Amazons

in thefe northern countries in ancient times? H'lpfocratc>,

who was not a man to relate idle tales, but

a very accurate and judicious obferver, tells us,

in his book [de Acr. Loc. isf Aq. fcfl. HI.) " There

" is in Eujope a nation of Scythians, efiabliihed

" on the Black Sea, widely difierent from anv

" other people ; they are called Sauromates ; their

" women ride on horfeback, make ufe of the bow,

" and are dexterous in handling the javelin. They

*' go to war wrhile they are virgins, and never

" marry till they have flain three of their enemies.

" They make it a matter ofconfcicnce to have

" no knowledge of man till they have accomplifh-

" ed this talk, and facrificed to the Divinity ac-

" cording to their national cuAoms. When a

" woman marries, flie is then exempted from

" ferving on horfeback, except in cafes of necef-

" fity on a general expedition."

donnent conftamment aux Amazones. Ils s'en

fervent ou comme d'une arme de guerre, bien

plus terrible & plus meurtrière que le fabre, ou

comme d'une marque d'honneur ^. de diftindtion.

HEROIC OR FABULOUS AGE. 515

Thls praftice ought to form a cavalry equally

extraordinary andplcafmg ; and there is no reafon

for viewing them through the veil of poetic fable,

or changing them into an independent republic,

cflabliflied on the Thermodon, we can fee no

reaibn for doubting of their exiftence in the time

of Hippocrates. The women of the North in

general preferved thefe mafcviline virtues and exerciies

for a long time.

The Greeks and Romans unanimoufly aflure

ns, they freqtiently met with troops of Amazons,

or women, in their battles with the Thracians,

Goths, and Germans. Even in our days we often

find women fighting with valour in our armies ;

arid we have feen the honour of knighthood conferred

for military merit on a female. The only

difference which our manners have put between

their military fpirit and that of the Amazons

or ancient Sauromates is, that there is no

longer a religion or national fpirit, which obliges

them to fubmit to this noviciate ; and that we

think ourfelves much happier with women who

have not pafTed through fuch trials,

This is tlie explanation, which is fufEciently

fatisfaftory as given by Mr. Lippcrt ; but we have

fome doubts on this head, and our uncertainty

does not proceed from what others think they fee

on thofe line engravings of Adonis, Hyacinthus,

IL III. V. 3.

According to DJ>tJymus''s comments on this paf-

fage, the Pigmies derived their name from Tivycç,

which fignifies elbow, becaufe they were no taller ;

and he calls them a nation of huflsandmen, eftahlifhed

in Egypt near the fea-fide, and perpetually

at war with the Cranes, on account of the havoc

they made in the fields and on their crops.

But the Cranes and Ibis were very much refpefted

in Egvpt. Was there in the time of

Homer a people in Egypt fo fanatic as to make

war againfl: the Cranes and Ibis, and their v/orfliippers,

as there were under the Roman emperors

who declared war againll: the worlliippers of

Cats and Apes ? If there were any Jewifli colonies

or Ar.abian hords in the Delta, it would be

very probable. Afcigrnr animis cœleflibus irte,

I have another remark to make on the Pigmies.

Though it may be fuppofed thev were very deficient

in courage, extremely diminutive, and

their fliape and form not very captivating, they

do not appear to have been the lefs efteemed and

fought after by the ladies of antiquity. In one

refpedt at leaf! they were well m.ade, and heroes,

as mav he plainly fecn by thefe engravings, and

from fome antique flatues found at Albano, and

more particularly in thofe of bronze found in

Herculaneum. It we could depend on Boccace,

or bring his Joconda as a proof, the race of Pigmies

had not yet degenerated in the times of the

kings of Lombardy. But Boccace is a fcurrilous

writer who delerves no credit in what he fays of

dwarfs, women, and monks.

Selon Dindymus fur ce paflage, les Pygméeg

avaient leur nom de -nvyoç, coudée, puisqu'ils

n'étaient plus hauts, & il les nomme une nation

d'agriculteurs établie en Egypte fur le bord de

l'océan, & continuellement en guerre avec les

Grues, par rapport aux degats qu'ils faifalent à

leurs campagnes & leurs récoltes.

Mais les Grues & les Ibis étaient fort refpeffés

en Egypte. Y avait il peut-être du tems d'Homère

un nome Egyptien, afîes fanatique pour faire la

guerre aux Grues & Ibis, & à leurs adorateurs,

comme il y en eut fous les empereurs Romains,

qui la lit aux adorateurs des Chats & des Singes ?

S'il y a eu dans le Delta des colonies Juives, ou

hordes Arabes, la chofe ferait affés pofTible. Magna

J'ai une autre remarque fur les Pygmées. Bien

que fuppofés avoir été fort laches du coté du

courage, h fort diminutifs & peu gracieux du

coté de leur taille & forme, ils ne fcmblent pas avoir

été pour cela moins eftimés & recherchés par les

dames de l'antiquité. D'un coté du moins ils

étaient bien faits & héros comme l'on voit affés

fur ces gravures & dans quelques ftatues antiques

trouvées à Albano, & furtout par les bronzes trouvés

à Herculanum. Si l'on pouvait compter fur

Boccace ou alléguer fa Joconde comme une preuve

de fait, la race des Pygmées n'avait pas encore

dégénérée du tems des rois de Lombardie. Aais

Boccace eft un medifant, qui ne mérite aucune

foi, ni fur le fujet des nains, ni fur celui des femmes,

& des moines.

The fubjcdl of this very curious and very

ancient engraving, the expedition of Polyniccs

againfi: the city of Thebes is fuflicicntly known

from ^îlfchylus's tragcdv on tlic fubjeft.

Gor'i, in his Storia Etrufca, was the iirft who

publiflied an engraving of it in wood ; but the

letters were imiicrfcft, and the drawing not very

correift. The belt engraving we have of it was

done by Baron Stofcb, and it is inferted in IVlnckclmanf.

Hiflory of the Arts, p. 344. Abbé Jntovetti,

fays Wirickclman, publllhcd a pretended defcription

of this engraving, which is only a com-

pilation of what was alrcadv known: the title is,

yliti'ica Gemma Etrufca jYiegula ed 'tllujlrata. Pija

1757. 4to.

The engraving is of the mofl remote antiquity ;

but however we would not venture to fay or

believe with fVinckdman, that it is the mofl ancient

monument of the Etrufcan arts, or of the

arts in general, " for the fliape ot the letters, and

•' the formation of the proper names, might differ

" very much from the Etrufcan, and refemble

" the Pelafgian form, without the leaf! thing in

«' favour of fo bold and dccifivc an affertion being

*' the confequence."

We know but little of the idiom of the Etrufcans,

who were a confederacy of different nations

at a great diflancc one from another ; we

know

flill lefs that of the Pelafgians, which however is

\ery juftly reckoned the mother of the Greek and

Etrufcan languages.

A charming engrav'ing, which happily exprelTes

the beauty and fine hair of the fon or Priam, wlio

wears the Phrygian cap onlv while in the charadfer

of a Ihephcrd and iudge of the goddtffes,

and whom tlie fkilful artill might very properly

have drefled as a warrior ; but then he mull have

followed the particular dcfcriptions which Homer

has given both of his arms and drefs. In the third

book of the Iliad, when tire Greek and Trojan

armies were in light of each other, " Paris like a

" god advances to the front of the Trojans co-

" vered v;;th the iWn of a leopard, armed with a

" bow and a fword, and holding in his hands two

" javelins mounted in fleel." With a fierce countenance

he bade defiance to the bravcft of the

Greeks. That challenge was followed by a

fliameful retreat only at the figlit of Menelaus

and the Greeks, which expofed him to thejufl:

reproaches of HeiSlor, and obliged him to propofe

a finglc combat between him and Menelaus,

which terminated no better. He then put on his

" Firft, that defigned for the

fplendid armour :

" legs, which was highly finifhed cuiffci. and faft-

" cned with filver clafps : he next put on the cu'i-

•'

rafs of his brothir Lycaon, who was of the fame

*' fize, and a Jlmddcr-hclt from which a great

*' fword h\ing : he then took up a large and heavy

" buckler, covering h'ls beautiful head with an helmet

" of exquifite workmanflaip, at the top of which

' inflead of a plume he had the tail of a horfc,

" waving with the wind, which gave him a more

*' formidable appearance ; and at laft, he took hold

*' of a ftrong javelin. In. the courfe of the com-

" bat, Mei.elaus fell upon Paris, laid hold of

" his helmet, and was dragging him towards the

'• Greeks, for the flrap which was tied under his

" chin choaked him, and he would infallibly

" liave been killed, if Venus had not perceived

••' his danger and broke the flrap. The helmet,

" no longer fartened, remained in the hand of

" Menelaus, who threw it with all his might

" over to the Greeks to be taken up by his

" friends, and in his rage, only thought of plung-

" ing his pike into the heart of Paris, by rufhlng

" upon him a fécond time, but Venus eafily con-

" veyed him from the field of battle, by covering

" him with a thick cloud, and leading him to an

•' apartment in the palace of Priam," as may be

imagined, luhhout helmet, without javelin, and wlth-

tut courage.

Urjinf% and by a ftatue in the Capitol, which

were arbitarily baptifed, gave the name of Pyrrhus,

king of Epirus, to three fuch heads ; and he has

expended much Greek and Latin in jultlfyinr his

conjefture, though, at the lame time, he gave the

name of Hanno-, or ^Ifdrui^al, to two others which

refemble them like two drops of water. In the

time of P)ir^.^-'.î, the kings fliaved their beards, as

the Abbé JVinckclman ha; very plainly proved in

liis Cut. de Stofch. p. 432. and it is confirmed by tîîéir

medals. Mr. If'inckelman, 1. r. and Marutte, have

changed thefe heads into portraits of Mars. If

they had paid th." leaf! attention to the two preceding

Phenician engravings, they would not have

been deceived. Upon the authority of thefe engravings

we fhall give tlie name of Hannibal to all

the heads which refemble them, and more particularly

to the pretended ftatue of Pyrrhus in the

but they are to be found with other

heads upon thofe of Lyfimachus, who, to flatter the

madnefs of the pretended fon of Jupiter Amnion,

had them placed there like the head of a deity. But

there is another reafon Hill ftronger to juflify our

heads of Alexander which many of the Roman

We oblerve, Ariftotle has here a beard and a cap,

and isdrefled in a cloak with a hood ; circunillances

by no means favourable to the authenticity of

the portrait; 7lAc.v rind Diogoirs Lacrtius t^]\\ng us

exprcfly, that Ariflotlc fliaved his beard, and appeared

more decently drcffed than the philofopliers

who were his cotemporaries ; they even add,

that this fingularity embroiled him with Plato.

The cap and the hood could not poffibly enter the

iinagination of an ancient artirt ; but plainly prove

that this engraving, in other refjic^is excellent,

is of the Cinque Cento, or the age of the Medici and

of Leo X. when the philofophy of Ariftotle, but

ill underftood, governed the fchools, and ruled the

minds of men. At that time, an engraver, little

acquainted with the manners of the ancients and

cufloms of philofophers, might very well take it

into his head to drels in the cap and cloak of a

doflor of Padua, the Stagyrite, who was. the

cotcmporary of Plato and Alexander. In faying

this, 1 likevi-ife pafs fcntence on the bronze buft

which was formerly in the pofleffion of Count

IVaJfcnaer Opdam, !)ut is at prefcnt in that of tlie

Landgrave of Htffc CaJJel ; it is equipped in the

£mic manner, and is marked on the pettino with

the infcription APISTOTEAOT.

It is almoll fuperfluous to obferve, after what

has been faid, that this head of Ariflotle has no
