Early Greek Philosophy by John Burnet, with Burnet's notes
13. Hippolytus 15. "Diogenes Laertios"

From Burnet's Note on the Sources

14. The Stromateis
The fragments of the pseudo-Plutarchean Stromateis, quoted by Eusebios in his Praeparatio Evangelica, come from a source similar to that of the best portions of the Philosophoumena. So far as we can judge, they differ chiefly in two points. In the first place, they are mostly taken from the earliest sections of the work, and therefore most of them deal with the primary substance, the heavenly bodies and the earth. In the second place, the language is a much less faithful transcript of the original.
