Chapter Summary

In all likelihood A contained a chapter nepi xivfaerog xoa^ou. Contrary to his usual practice, P did not include it, perhaps because it was short and added little. S may have deleted the diaeresis because it was anonymous. The heading could have been subsumed under 1.19 nepi xivfaerog, but this chapter only contains the contents of P 1.19, nothing from Book II. If the Stoic lemma belongs to the chapter, then an entirely different kind of motion must be added, involving expansion and contraction from the centre outwards and back again. The reconstruction of the contents of the chapter is necessarily hypothetical on account of its defective transmission. Nevertheless the evidence does suggest a structure involving two diaereses. The first is between circular motion and inward/outward motion. The second is between two kinds of circular motion as illustrated by the images of a millstone and a wheel.

Keywords: Aetius Placita; diaeresis; Stoic lemma
