Summary

The title Πυθαγορικαὶ ἀποφάσεις is commonly translated Pythagorean Sayings (Dillon and Hershbell 1991: 7) or Pythagorean Maxims (Kahn 2001: 70; Barker OCD), although a number of scholars have preferred not to translate it (Wehrli 1967, Burkert 1972, Minar 1942: 99). The word ἀπόφασις has two quite distinct meanings (LSJ s.v.), one derived from ἀπόφημι (in its meaning “to deny”) and the other from ἀποφαίνω (“show forth,” “declare”).
