Example text

Thesleff,op. 50, p. 631, Heeren. Translated by Vicki Lynn Harper. 41 3. 1 It is certain that there were at least two, and possibly more ancient women philosophers of that name who left written records of their views. And although "Perictione" was the name of Plato's mother, other authors of that name have been identified. Because there are sound philological reasons to distinguish at least two Theanos and two Perictiones those distinctions are preserved in this volume. While we cannot be certain whether the texts attributed to "Theano II" in this chapter ought to be attributed to one and the same person, we can be reasonably assured that this is not Theano of Crotona.

III. MYIA Myia is mentioned as one of the daughters of Theano and Pythagoras. 14 She was married to an athlete, Milo (sometimes referred to as Milon, Mylon, or even Meno) who came from her mother's native Crotona.

Religious practices can contribute to harmonia, but when the wrong kind of practices are engaged in, or when the right kind of practices are carried to excess, harmonia can be destroyed. It is the woman's responsibility to preserve harmonia through moderation even in the practice of religion. 32 Late pythagoreans: III. PERICTIONE I There are two documents attributed to "Perictione," the first text is apparently a fragment from a larger work entitled On the Harmony of Women.
