[Meaning an] archetype, or a characteristic providing a conception of a perceptible matter. Note that a model [is] one thing, a parable [parabolh/] another.[1] For there is a model whenever someone compares what is similar to what is similar, such as what is rational to what is rational. By contrast [there is] a parable whenever [someone compares] what is dissimilar to what is dissimilar, such as what is rational to what is irrational or vice versa.
Alternatively[2] a model is a rational account [deriving] from the particulars and [going] to the universals.[3] Or a proof that substantiates a part through a similar part.
