Terram terreno comprendimus, aethera flammis,

Humorem liquido, nostro spirabile flatu,

Pacem tranquillo, litem quoque litigioso.

comprendimus

sentimus, at Chalc. comm. 218 (231 W)

Chalc. comm. 51 (100 W): Pythagoricum dogma similia non nisi a similibus suis comprehendi. quod etiam Empedocles sequens ait in suis uersibus: "terram ... litigioso".
Ibid. 218 (231 W): "terram ... flatu".

Cf. Emp. fr. 109 D: γαίῃ μὲν γὰρ γαῖαν ὀπώπαμεν, ὕδατι δ’ ὕδωρ, / αἰθέρι δ’ αἰθέρα δῖον, ἀτὰρ πυρὶ πῦρ ἀίδηλον, / στοργὴν δὲ στοργῇ, νεῖκος δέ τε νείκεϊ λυγρῷ.
