Chapter Summary

In this chapter Stobaeus creates a special sub-section with the sub-title si sv TO nav. To these lemmata he then adds two more not found in P, i.e. S8 - 9. S has wholly ignored the sequence of the chapter such as we found it in P. He does furnish a lot of information deleted by P. The systematic structure of the chapter is in the first instance determined by the interaction of these two questions. They can be presented either in a diaeretic structure, or by means of a grid. After the first introductory lemma, the rest of the chapter explores how one can speak about the cosmos as ordered whole. The structure of the chapter is more than usually complex, because it combines two methods of working with doxai. The linkage between the three diaereses is the most important factor in organizing the systematics of the chapter.

Keywords: Aetius Placita; cosmos; diaeretic structure; doxai; grid; lemmata; sequence; systematic structure
