Many of the Latin translations from Menander, in Menander's own iambic meter, on pp. 74-100 of this Board were composed by the Dutch scholar Hugo Grotius (1583-1645). Some were done by Henri Estienne (1528-1598, the famed editor/printer "Stephanus"), and the rest by the German classicist Johann Friedrich Dübner (1802-1867).   See,+quo+hostibus+credes+minus%22&source=bl&ots=vLgmtq40SR&sig=m5uEYADLn50iu0LVxu4uwPzR-38&hl=ja&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjKt9Py4ozKAhWCg6YKHYz2BykQ6AEIHDAA#v=onepage&q=%22Minus%20dolebis%2C%20quo%20hostibus%20credes%20minus%22&f=false, pp. 799-818. The command of those scholars over the two ancient languages is, to us moderns, almost beyond belief.
