The quotation closely approximates Diogenes Laertius 7.152, from the life of the Stoic philosopher Zeno of Kition (Citium); cf. zeta 79, kappa 1685, and OCD(4) s.v. Zeno(2). This passage concerns the physics of Zeno and his fellow Stoic Chrysippus (cf. chi 569 and OCD(4) s.v.).
The phrase pro\s a)/rkton literally means to the Bear, i.e. the constellation Ursa Major (cf. alpha 3961).
