Idem for the fragment from Simplicius. See Jonathan Barnes, Early Greek Philosophy (London: Penguin, 1987). nine sixty six Parmenides misplaced in Translation to Simplicius’ first model, yet with the adjective eupeitheos, “highly persuasive,” transmitted through Sextus, in verse 29. 10 hence, the top of fragment 1 is going: [. . . ] χρεὼ δέ σε πάντα πυθέσθαι ἠμὲν ἀληθείης εὐκυκλέος ἀτρεμὲς ἦτορ [30] ἠδὲ βροτῶν δόξας, ταῖς οὐκ ἔνι πίστις ἀληθής. ἀλλ᾿ ἔμπης καὶ ταῦτα μαθήσαι, ὡς τὰ δοκοῦντα χρῆν δοκίμως εἶναι διὰ παντὸς πάντα περῶντα.
