      Dear Michael, once again I am in your debt for these references, and
      fortunately I have that collection of essays by Saffrey. It's
      interesting then that Lewy took that other section in the Theosophia
      I referred to in my earlier posting to be lifted from Porphyry also,
      from the Philosophy Drawn from the Oracles, although I don't know
      that has been accepted or even recognized.

      I have another study that might be relevant as well, that I have yet
      to check, <Porphyre et le moyen-platonisme> by Marco Zambon. He has
      one chapter devoted to Porphyry and the Chaldaean Oracles. That is a
      subject I would like more clarity on, and I gather from a quick
      reading of Hadot's essay appended to the 1978 edition of Lewy that
      it's rather a troubled issue. Perhaps Zambon will help there.
