Translation:
Son of Pures, from Elea,[1] a philosopher.[2] He was a disciple of Xenophanes of Colophon,[3] but according to Theophrastus [he was a disciple] of Anaximander of Miletus.[4] As successors he had Empedocles,[5] who was also a philosopher and a physician, and Zeno of Elea.[6] He wrote Physiology[7] in epic verse, and other works in prose, which Plato mentions.[8]
Greek Original:
Παρμενίδης, Πύρητος, Ἐλεάτης, φιλόσοφος, μαθητὴς γεγονὼς Ξενοφάνους τοῦ Κολοφωνίου, ὡς δὲ Θεόφραστος Ἀναξιμάνδρου τοῦ Μιλησίου. αὐτοῦ δὲ διάδοχοι ἐγένοντο Ἐμπεδοκλῆς τε, ὁ καὶ φιλόσοφος καὶ ἰατρός, καὶ Ζήνων ὁ Ἐλεάτης. ἔγραψε δὲ Φυσιολογίαν δι' ἐπῶν, καὶ ἄλλα τινὰ καταλογάδην, ὧν μέμνηται Πλάτων.
Notes:
C(6-)5 BCE. See generally OCD4 s.v.
[1] For Elea, see epsilon 768.
[2] Monist philosopher and poet, C6 BCE: see web address 1 (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
[3] For Xenophanes, see xi 46.
[4] For Theophrastus, see theta 199; for Anaximander, see alpha 1986. Diogenes Laertius 9.21 says that Parmenides (i) was taught by Xenophanes but (ii) was not his follower. Between i and ii he adds parenthetically that Theophrastus (Physicorum opiniones 6a) called "this man" a pupil of Anaximander; unfortunately the syntax leaves it unclear whether "this man" is Parmenides or, as Diels preferred, Xenophanes.
[5] For Empedocles, see epsilon 1002, epsilon 1003.
[6] For Zeno, see zeta 77.
[7] Perhaps the same as Peri phuseos?
[8] See Plato Sophist 237A, Parmenides 128A (web addresses 2 & 3).
