Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with a particular theme that is peculiar to the stars, though it could have been placed elsewhere. One can usefully compare the section on the earth, which ends with chapters on subjects that are peculiar to the earth, i.e. earthquakes, the sea and tides. The only significant variation among the sources concerns the title; Ps.Plutarch (P) and Qusṭā Ibn Lūqā (Q) preserve the long title; Eusebius (E), followed by Diels, leaves out the reference to the stars. ps.Galen's (G) title is shorter still.

Keywords: Ps.Plutarch (P); stars
