Lines 27.14–17 of the text published by Justin Stover as Apuleius, De Platone 3 are printed by him as follows:

quorum [sc. animalium] inmortalia esse quae in caelo sint; idcirco illa ordine cieri et eodem semper modo et alioquin esse prudentia.

Of them [sc. animals], the immortal animals are those which are in the heavens; thus they move in an ordered pattern in the same way, and in addition, they are rational. (trans. J. Stover)

4 I hope to treat this question in a separate paper.

5 For other instances of incorrect word-division in this text, see Stover (n. 1), 57.

6 moueor is, of course, a much more standard equivalent for κινοῦμαι than cieor, but I do not really believe that κινούμενον is supposed to be rendered in the passage under discussion.
