The Timaeus Locrus (=TL) is a précis-paraphrase of Plato’s Timaeus. It tries to be in the Doric dialect, and it essays eloquence. It by-passes much of the Timaeus, and its vocabulary is largely non-Platonic. It also frequently diverges from the Timaeus in content. Like Aristotle and Plutarch the author of the TL renders Plato’s doctrine of Place in terms of Hyle, Morphe and Hypokeimenon. He also improves on Plato’s natural science. The TL omits Plato’s Theory of Forms. God constructs his world after an ‘Idea’, but this word is never used in the plural.
