“b. Survey of opposing positions: positive, negative and suspensive (50–9)

[50] Of those who have inquired into the reality of god, then, some say that there is a god, some that there is not, and some that there no more is than is not.

and Diagoras of Melos, Prodicus of Ceos, Theodorus and a whole lot of others.

37 From Callimachus, Iambus I (line 11). Most of this poem exists only in papyrus fragments, but this line as well as two preceding ones are quoted (and ascribed to Callimachus’ Iambi) in pseudo- Plutarch, plac. philos. I.7 (880E) (= Aetius, 298, 4–6 Diels), and elsewhere. From these other sources it is clear that the original poem said “scribbles” (psêchei), not “scribbling” (psêchôn); Sextus has changed the syntax to fit his own sentence. See Pfeiffer 1949: vol. I, fr.191.”
