Even more: Archimedes does not pause to generalize inside the particular proof. There are no “three dots” in this proof. He goes on and on, exhausting the polygon (instead of saying “and so on” at some stage). While there is an effort to make the particular case “as general as possible,” there is no gesture towards making the generalization explicit. /2/ Eut. 250 Given two unequal magnitudes, it is possible to find two unequal lines so that the greater line has to the smaller a ratio smaller than the greater magnitude to the smaller.

20 The derivation from Step 2 to Step 3 (“A is the same multiple of B as D is of C; therefore A:B::C:D”) is too simple to be proved by Euclid. It is part of the definition of proportion, but only in the case of numbers (Elements VII. Def. 21). 7 Cor. e. a change such as A:B::C:D → C:D::A:B is not considered as a move at all, and requires no word of the “alternately” family.

7 Cor. Eudoxus was certainly a great mathematician, active probably in the first half of the fourth century. The most important piece of evidence is this passage (together with a cognate one in Archimedes’ Method: see general comments). Aside for this, there are many testimonies on Eudoxus, but almost all of them are very late or have little real information on his mathematics, and most are also very unreliable. Thus the real historical figure of Eudoxus is practically unknown. For indications of the evidence on Eudoxus, see Lasserre (1966), Merlan (1960).
