**Example text**

Proclus refers to another work of Eudemus besides the history, viz. a book on The Angle ({3t{3"Aiov 7T"€pl ryro via<;)'. Tanner~assumes that this must have been part of the history, and uses this assumption to confirm his idea that the history was arranged according to subjects, not according to chronological orders. The phraseology of Proclus however unmistakably suggests p. separate work; and that the history was chronologically arranged seems to be clearly indicated by the remark of Simplicius that Eudemus "also counted Hippocrates among the more ancient writers" (iv TO£<; 7T"a"AaWT€pO£c;)6.

I doubt if the evidence is sufficient. 1 H. E. 3 34 INTRODUCTION [CH.

On the other hand there are considerations which suggest that Produs himself was not the writer. (I) The style of the whole passage is not such as to point to him as the author. (2) If he wrote it, it is hardly conceivable that he would have passed over in silence the discovery of the analytical method, the invention of Plato to which he attached so much importances.
