of splendid talents, of lax principles, and of boundless
vanity and presumption, would submit to no control. . . .

character of Pitt; but, now that Pitt [Lord Chatham]

peror, and soon after marched against Decebalus, King

(which is still extant) was erected on the Forum Trajani,
in commemoration of these victories, by Apollodorus of

Selinus, in Cilicia, in 117 A.D., and was succeeded by

perors of Rome. He is commended for his moderation,
sound judgment, and the simplicity of his mode of living.

at the tribunal when the martyr Ignatius was sentenced
to death. Among his friends was Pliny the Younger,
who wrote a " Panegyric en Trsjan."
