7. There are apparently three Peripatetic philosophers of the name of Aristoteles.
The first is mentioned as a commentator of his great namesake (Syrian. Metaphys.
12.55); the second, a son of Erasistratus, is mentioned by S. Empiricus (ad v. Math.
p. 51); and the third, a Mytilenaean, was one of the most distinguished speculative philosophers in the time of Galen. (De Consuetud.
p. 553, ed. Paris.)
