Early Greek Philosophy by John Burnet, with Burnet's notes
3. Stoics 5. Neoplatonists

From Burnet's Note on the Sources

4. Skeptics
The same remarks apply mutatis mutandis to the Skeptics. The interest of such a writer as Sextus Empiricus in early philosophy is mainly to exhibit its contradictions. But what he tells us is often of value; for he frequently quotes early views as to knowledge and sensation in support of his thesis.
