This recent translation has a helpful and fairly lengthy introduction to set out the main arguments. In this new translation, Zeyl introduces some new elements but the work is readable and well done.

Frase: "La esencia es a la generación como la verdad a la creencia".

Existe una disyuntiva entre "lo que es" y "lo que se genera".

Se nos presenta un Dios creador de dioses que luego continúan su tarea.

De aquí que los discursos de Timeo estén sólo basados en la verosimilitud.
