Catalogue Note

This is Iamblichus's Neoplatonist commentary on Nicomachus's treatise on the mystical and divine properties of numbers. Nicomachus (c. 50-150 AD) was a Neopythagorean philosopher who set Pythagoras at the heart of mathematical study. The editor was Samuel ten Nuyl (1635-1688), professor in Nijmegen.
