The Middle Platonist Compendiosa Expositio gives dialogue-by-dialogue summaries of doctrines allegedly expounded in Plato’s works. According to Justin Stover, the principle of division used by the work for arranging Plato’s dialogues is the dominant philosophical influence in each case. I argue that there is no principle of division, and that the dialogues are arranged, not on the basis of influence, but according to their main speaker. One thing this allows, I suggest, is for the author of the CE to assert the dependence of the Stoics on Plato.
