1. Plato, Cratylus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

400c. ign ( σῆμα ). But I think it most likely that the Orphic poets gave this name, with the idea that the soul is undergoing punishment for something; they think it has the body as an enclosure to keep it safe, like a prison, and this is, as the name itself denotes, the safe ( σῶμα ) for the soul, until the penalty is paid, and not even a letter needs to be changed.
2. Plato, Gorgias, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

493b. in these uninitiate that part of the soul where the desires are, the licentious and fissured part, he named a leaky jar in his allegory, because it is so insatiate. So you see this person, Callicles, takes the opposite view to yours, showing how of all who are in Hades—meaning of course the invisible—these uninitiate will be most wretched, and will carry water into their leaky jar with a sieve which is no less leaky. And then by the sieve
3. Plato, Phaedo, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

108a. for he says a simple path leads to the lower world, but I think the path is neither simple nor single, for if it were, there would be no need of guides, since no one could miss the way to any place if there were only one road. But really there seem to be many forks of the road and many windings; this I infer from the rites and ceremonies practiced here on earth. Now the orderly and wise soul follows its guide and understands its circumstances; but the soul that is desirous of the body, as I said before, flits about it, and in the visible world for a long time
4. Plato, Philebus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

16c. Soc. One which is easy to point out, but very difficult to follow for through it all the inventions of art have been brought to light. See this is the road I mean. Pro. Go on what is it? Soc. A gift of gods to men, as I believe, was tossed down from some divine source through the agency of a Prometheus together with a gleaming fire; and the ancients, who were better than we and lived nearer the gods, handed down the tradition that all the things which are ever said to exist are sprung from one and many and have inherent in them the finite and the infinite. This being the way in which these things are arranged
5. Lucian, The Dream, Or The Cock, 2 (2nd cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

6. Boethius, De Arithmetica, 2.45 (5th cent. CE - 6th cent. CE)

7. Proclus, Theologia Platonica ( ), 1.5, 3.8 (5th cent. CE - 5th cent. CE)

8. Olympiodorus The Younger of Alexandria, In Platonis Phaedonem Commentaria, 1.3-1.5, 1.8 (6th cent. CE - 6th cent. CE)

9. Simplicius of Cilicia, In Aristotelis De Caelo Libros Commentaria, 517.22 (missingth cent. CE - 5th cent. CE)
