page 44 note 1 At 281a 1, while fully agreeing with the interpretation, we would suggest that the conjecture of γρ for δ seems unnecessary in view of the fact that Aristotle frequently introduces an additional point by δ where γρ might be expected. At 292a 26 Bywater's κκοντσεως for the meaningless κα κονσεως seems a certain emendation which might well be adopted.
page 45 note 1 Attention may perhaps be called to a hesitation in the text between the alternative spellings γγνεσθαι and γνεσθαι (e.g. 315a 23 γγνεται, b 25 γνεται) and οὐδν and οὐθν (e.g. 328a 15 οὐθν, 329a 15 οὐδν). It is a discouraging task to try and discover inaccuracies in a text printed by the Oxford Press, and the only suggestion we can offer is that τισι. (315a 9) lacks an accent!
page 45 note 2 A good example of Professor Joachim's method is his justification of the conjecture αὐλς (322a 28, 30) for the un-Aristotelian ἄϋλος, which has hitherto held the field.
