Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly examines the role of heavenly bodies as purveyors of signs in relation to the seasons. ps.Galen (G) preserves only an abbreviated title and a truncated version of the first lemma. The second part of Ps.Plutarch's (P) title is not covered by the contents of the chapter, which discusses not how winter and summer occur but what indications of their occurrence are given by the risings and settings of the heavenly bodies. It is clear that Stobaeus (S) has indulged in a fair amount of rephrasing in order to adapt the three doxai to his grand scheme of coalescence. In general the wording in P must be preferred.

Keywords: heavenly body; ps.Galen (G); Ps.Plutarch (P); Stobaeus (S)
