Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the analysis of Aëtius Placita 2.21.There are no variations in the tradition of P in relation to the title. The most important variant relates to the final doxa. Of considerable interest is the fact that in the first text (only) the name-label of Anaximenes is added to that of Anaximander. The question of the sun's size was often used in rhetorical contexts as an example of a philosophical question.

Keywords: placita; Aëtius; Anaximander
