Ex 86, #9

I have a question about number 9. We are to translate "The Roman people give money to the good sailors".

To my knowledge, the text only survives through quotation in Galen's writings. I have a reference, although I don't quite know what it means or what to do with it:

New Forum Banner?

Please use avatars that are appropriate for an educational website. Avoid images of sex, violence and hate or any other image that you wouldn't want a younger site visitor to see.
