Excerpt from The Historic Gallery of Portraits and Paintings, Vol. 4
Tun two first heads havebeenwroughtfroms single block of marble. That which interests the reader as the left is the portrait of Epicurus, chief of a sect of philoso phers, no less famous among the ancients than the modems. They pretended that happiness consisted in voluptuousness; but this pleasure, in their opinion, was no other thing than virtue. We are not to reproach them for the eccentricities of some of their sectarian. Epicurus was laborious and frugal.' He was born in a village of Attica, in the year 342 B. C. And died at the age of seventy-two, completely worn out by fatigue. He composed a variety of philosophical treatises, the most part of which are lost. It is from his works that Ln cretins collected Opinions which be decorated with all the charms of poetry.
