I think I should also add that arguments are
drawn not merely from admitted facts, but from
fictitious suppositions, which the Greeks style καθ᾽ὑπόθεσιν and that this latter type of argument falls
into all the same divisions as those which I have
mentioned above, since there may be as many
species of fictitious arguments as there are of true
Quintilian. With An English Translation. Harold Edgeworth Butler. Cambridge. Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann, Ltd. 1921.
