The heading of this short summary of the winds in the manuscript shows it to be an extract from a work called De Signis, not by Aristotle but by some member of the Peripatetic School. Bekker’s text has been used for the translation, but it has been extensively corrected by that of Apelt, whose edition of 1888 shows a marked advance on the previous German text.
