Translation:
Son of Nikomakhos and Phaistias. Nikomakhos was a physician in the tradition of the Asklepiads, from Nikomakhos the son of Makhaon.[1] [Aristotle came] from Stageira, a city of Thrace;[2] he was a philosopher, a disciple of Plato, with a stammering voice. He had siblings Arimnestos and Arimneste, and a daughter by Pythias, the daughter of Hermeias the eunuch, who fathered her despite his being castrated.[3] The daughter of Aristotle married three times and after giving birth predeceased her father Aristotle. He also had a son Nikomakhos from Herpyllis his concubine, *whom he took after Pythias the daughter of Hermeias the eunuch, who was a ruler of Atarneus. This place [is located] in the Troad, and having become a slave of Euboulos the Bithynian, Hermeias received [it from him].[4] And Hermeias himself became the lover of Aristotle.*[5] He presided for 13 years[6] over the philosophy which was called Peripatetic; it acquired this name because he taught on a walking path [peripatos] or in a garden after he left the Academy, in which Plato taught. He was born in the 99th Olympiad[7] and died by drinking aconite in Chalkis [Myth, Place], because he was being summoned to receive punishment, since he had written a paean to Hermeias the eunuch;[8] but some say he died of disease when he had lived 70 years.
Greek Original:
Ἀριστοτέλης, υἱὸς Νικομάχου καὶ Φαιστιάδος: ὁ δὲ Νικόμαχος ἰατρὸς ἦν τοῦ τῶν Ἀσκληπιαδῶν γένους, ἀπὸ Νικομάχου τοῦ Μαχάονος. ἐκ Σταγείρων, πόλεως τῆς Θρᾴκης, φιλόσοφος, μαθητὴς Πλάτωνος, τραυλὸς τὴν φωνήν. καὶ ἀδελφοὺς μὲν ἔσχεν Ἀρίμνηστον καὶ Ἀριμνήστην, θυγατέρα δὲ ἀπὸ Πυθιάδος, τῆς θυγατρὸς Ἑρμείου τοῦ εὐνούχου: ὃς καὶ θλαδίας ὢν αὐτὴν ἔσπειρε. γημαμένη δὲ τρισὶν ἡ Ἀριστοτέλους θυγάτηρ τεκνώσασα προετελεύτησεν Ἀριστοτέλους τοῦ πατρός. ἔσχε δὲ καὶ υἱὸν Νικόμαχον ἐξ Ἑρπυλλίδος παλλακῆς, ἣν ἠγάγετο μετὰ Πυθιάδα παρ' Ἑρμείου τοῦ εὐνούχου: ὅστις ἦν ἄρχων Ἀταρνέως, χώρα δὲ αὕτη Τρῳάδος, Εὐβούλου δὲ τοῦ Βιθυνοῦ δοῦλος γεγονὼς ἔλαβε: καὶ αὐτοῦ Ἑρμείου παιδικὰ γενομένου Ἀριστοτέλους. ἦρξε δὲ ἔτη ιγ# τῆς Περιπατητικῆς κληθείσης φιλοσοφίας διὰ τὸ ἐν περιπάτῳ ἤτοι κήπῳ διδάξαι ἀναχωρήσαντα τῆς Ἀκαδημίας, ἐν ᾗ Πλάτων ἐδίδαξεν. ἐγεννήθη δὲ ἐν τῇ #4θ# Ὀλυμπιάδι καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἀκόνιτον πιὼν ἐν Χαλκίδι, διότι ἐκαλεῖτο πρὸς εὐθύνας, ἐπειδὴ ἔγραψε παιᾶνα εἰς Ἑρμείαν τὸν εὐνοῦχον: οἱ δέ φασι νόσῳ αὐτὸν τελευτῆσαι βιώσαντα ἔτη ο#.
