Hac ratione, qui in difflcili τον σκοτεινοίJ doctrina laborabant, ex'plicare studebant, cur Ephesius placita sua tot obscuritatibus involvisset. Haec tamen obscuritas non tam de industria ab eo quaesita esse videtur, quam cum ex sermone Graeco iis temporibus subtilitati philosophicae nondum satis apto tum maxime ex doctrinae Heracliti indole exsurgit.

Πάντες γάρ, dicit Alcibiades (Conviv. 218 Β) versu Orphico usus1, κεκοινωνηκατε της φιλοσόφου μανίας τε και βακχείας· δώ πάντες άν. ονσεσ&ε' . . . οι δε οικέται, και εϊ τις άλλος εστί βέβηλος τε και Βγροικος, π ν λα ς πάνυ μεγάλας τοις ώσιν επί&εσ&ΐ.
