For, since the straight line AE stands on the straight line CD, making the angles CEA, AED, the angles CEA, AED are equal to two right angles [[I. 13](elem.1.13)]

Again, since the straight line DE stands on the straight line AB, making the angles AED, DEB, the angles AED, DEB are equal to two right angles. [[I. 13](elem.1.13)]

But the angles CEA, AED were also proved equal to two right angles; therefore the angles CEA, AED are equal to the angles AED
DEB. [[Post. 4](elem.1.post.4) and [C. N. 1](elem.1.c.n.1)] Let the angle AED be subtracted from each; therefore the remaining angle CEA is equal to the remaining angle BED. [[C. N. 3](elem.1.c.n.3)]

Similarly it can be proved that the angles CEB, DEA are also equal.

Therefore etc. Q. E. D.

Porism.
[From this it is manifest that, if two straight lines cut one another, they will make the angles at the point of section equal to four right angles.

The difference between adjacent angles (αἱ ἐφεξῆς γωνίαι) and vertical angles (αἱ κατὰ κορυφὴν γωνίαι) is thus explained by Proclus (p. 298, 14-24). The first term describes the angles made by two straight lines when one only is divided by the other, i.e. when one straight line meets another at a point which is not either of its extremities, but is not itself produced beyond the point of meeting. When the first straight line is produced, so that the lines cross at the point, they make two pairs of vertical angles (which are more clearly described as vertically opposite angles), and which are so called because their convergence is from opposite directions to one point (the intersection of the lines) as vertex (κορυφή).
