Winifred F. Courtney, Young Charles Lamb: 1775-1802 (New York: New York University Press, 1983), p. 46, on Charles Valentine Le Grice:
He was known to his contemporaries as the translator of the Latin poet Longus.
This is wrong on two counts: 1) Longus wrote in Greek, not Latin, and 2) Longus wrote prose (the romance Daphnis and Chloe), not poetry.
