Aristóteles, Sonne of Nicomachus the phisition, borne in Stragera, in Greece, consumed his youth riotously. He was after scholer to the noble Plato. xx. yeares continually. He excelled all men in sharpenesse of witte and knowledge in dyuers sciences: wherefore king Philip of Macedonie sent him his sonne Alexander to teach, saying: He thanked God, that he had a sonne borne in his tyme. This man began a sect, the followers whereof were ealled Peripaterici. Hee taught after Platos death. xxiiii. yeares. He was banished out of Athens, because it was supposed that hee deemed not well of their Gods. It is written that he dyed by this occasion. As hee went by the sea side, hce perceiued fishermen sitting and doing of somewhat. And when hee asked what they dyd, they tolde him a tiddle, which when by long studie he coulde not assoyle: for shame and sorrowe hee dyed. Of him Ouintilian wryteth thus. What saye you by Aristotle, whome I wot not whether I may iudge more excellent in knowledge of things, in abundance of wrytyng, in sweetenesse of Eloquence, in sharpnesse of witte, or elle in diuersitie of workes. He was little of personage, crookebacked, yll shapen, & stutting. He was 345. yeares before Christes incarnation.
