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

229e. of strange, inconceivable, portentous natures. If anyone disbelieves in these, and with a rustic sort of wisdom, undertakes to explain each in accordance with probability, he will need a great deal of leisure. Socrates. But I have no leisure for them at all; and the reason, my friend, is this: I am not yet able, as the Delphic inscription has it, to know myself; so it seems to me ridiculous
2. Plato, Theaetetus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

174b. THEO. Yes, I do; you are right. SOC. Hence it is, my friend, such a man, both in private, when he meets with individuals, and in public, as I said in the beginning
3. Sextus, Against The Mathematicians, 7.34-7.37, 7.261-7.442 (2nd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

4. Sextus, Outlines of Pyrrhonism, 1.170-1.172, 2.26, 2.31, 2.38-2.42, 2.70 (2nd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

5. Diogenes Laertius, Lives of The Philosophers, 9.94 (3rd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

9.94. We must not assume that what convinces us is actually true. For the same thing does not convince every one, nor even the same people always. Persuasiveness sometimes depends on external circumstances, on the reputation of the speaker, on his ability as a thinker or his artfulness, on the familiarity or the pleasantness of the topic.Again, they would destroy the criterion by reasoning of this kind. Even the criterion has either been critically determined or not. If it has not, it is definitely untrustworthy, and in its purpose of distinguishing is no more true than false. If it has, it will belong to the class of particular judgements, so that one and the same thing determines and is determined, and the criterion which has determined will have to be determined by another, that other by another, and so on ad infinitum.
