To these Hermagoras and Apollodorus and many other
writers have given the special name of questions;
Theodorus on the other hand, as I have already said,
calls them general heads, while he designates minor
questions or questions dependent on these general
heads as special heads. For it is agreed that question
may spring from question, and species be subdivided
into other species.
