Chapter Summary

We cannot analyse the present chapter without taking the earlier chapter into account. Both distinguished commentators on Posidonius, Kidd and Theiler, argue that the book title should be taken with the Posidonian lemma, since it must have come from somewhere. The anthologist coalesces this chapter with the chapters in Book I. The title of the chapter is very similar to that of A, 13 and, just as in A, it is clearly part of a standard sequence of chapters on the cosmos. It is necessary briefly to look at Book I ch. 18 HEQLKEVOO, which bears a close resemblance to the present chapter. It treats the same subject in absolute terms rather than as applied to the cosmos, there is little difference between the two treatments. A himself gives the subject of this chapter as one of the examples of a quaestio in the Preface to the work.

Keywords: Aetius Placita; anthologist; cosmos; Posidonian lemma; standard sequence
