I don't understand, but that's all right. I have kept of of this thread
because I do not know the references.

I have read it, but I'm not qualified to remark on it as a piece of
classical scholarship. A friend of mine who is thus qualified (a Marxist
classicist-medeivalist) says that it's respectable considering the state
of scholarship at the time M wrote and that it was a doctoral
dissertation, which in Marx's time was more like a Mater's thesis today.
That is to say, if Marx had not written the thing, no one would be
interrested in it now.
