Chapter Summary

This chapter indicates that the subject falls in the Aristotelian category of disposition. The same six doxai are copied out in E and Q, with some interesting textual variants. For example, E uses the accusative form φαίνωνα for Saturn instead of φαίνωνα, which is also found in S. The only lemma that remains is S8, which is then written out. There can be little doubt that it was originally placed in A 2.15. The four doxai are all presented anonymously. They differ from A in that only the planetary circuits are considered, without any reference to the fixed stars. The chapter compares a text in Geminus which puts forward exactly the same contrast, though not in a doxographical context.

Keywords: Aëtius; Aristotle; doxai
