Thanks! I found it also in the old edition, which I bought years ago. It's at 94 (p. 103).

I don't think Aristotle is the best author to use as a source for teaching yourself Attic Greek. There are already aspects of his composition that indicate a transition from Attic to Koine, so you would be better off beginning with an author such as Plato.

Thanks for the tip. I'm also reading Aesop's fables. What do you think of them?
