Example text

For one thing, it remains for Zhmud to explain the philosophical language of the passage quoted by Iamblichus. See below in chapters 1 and 2 for my alternative treatment of the evidence. 16. See Zhmud 2012: 173 with n. 16. 17. Burkert 1972: 197. 18. See Burkert 1972: 167–169, with Iambl. 11–13, and Delatte 1915: 274–307. Burkert rightly reminds us that these “orally transmitted maxims and sayings” were also called symbola.
