Notes:
On Oinomaos [Author, Myth]/Oenomaus [Author, Myth], fl. 120 CE, see generally John Moles in OCD(4) s.v. He is the only Cynic philosopher of whom we have a significant amount of material, probably belonging to his treatise On the discovery of wailers; the text is preserved in Eusebius, PE V-VI. In this work Oinomaos strongly criticizes the fatalistic Stoic position that the world is ruled by fate understood as a concatenation of events. For detailed discussion on the issue, see Brancacci (2000), 41 ff.
