Excerpt from book:
CHAP. VII. Of the commerce of the Greeks, and that of Egypt, after the conquejl of Alexander. THE firft Greeks were all pirates. Minos, Book who enjoyed the empire of the fea, was only C,XXI' more fuccefsful, perhaps, than others in piracy ; up'7" for his maritime dominion extended no farther than round his own ifle.
