Wh that number should have bIloe chosen so clear enough, and it speaks wt11 for the practical sense of those ancient Babylonian merchants. There is no number which has so many divisions as 60. The Babylonians -ivided the sun's daily journey into 24 prrsangs, or 710 stadia. Each parasang or hour was sub-' divided into 00 minutes. A parasang is about a German mile, and Babylonian astronomers compared the progress made by the sun during one hour at the time of the equinox to the progress made by a good walker during the same time, both necom plishing one parasang. The whole course of the sun during the 24 equinoetial homa was fixed at 24 parasangs, or 720 atadia, or, 3G0Odegs. This system was handed on to the G:eeks, and ...

TuE.snuaCAL displays are all very weii in their place. A. good performance of a:leadhig dramatist's: .~ecei -or a first-class opera is acceptable to most people, and no doubt do much more good than harm...
