      Thanks a lot for your answers.

      Unfortunately the book by Moreschini seems to be out of print. And since I am
      located in Metz, France I have a very limited access to libraries.

      I found however a commentary to the second part of the book by Van Winden which
      also seems to provide translations.

      M.C. Not sure who has been peddling that viewpoint. Calcidius is clearly
      Neoplatonic, and it's highly likely he preserves material from Porphyry.

      Besides, does anyone know if there is a

      M.C. There's a quite good recent Italian translation by Moreschini et al.

      Best, Mike
