Definitions (Plato)

The Definitions (Greek: Ὅροι; Latin: Definitiones[1]) is a dictionary of about 185 philosophical terms sometimes included in the corpus of Plato's works. Plato is generally not regarded as the editor of all of Definitions. Some ancient scholars attributed Definitions to Speusippus.[2]
