I'd call Ptolemy's scheme outlined in Apot. 3.11.3 a "house system" if it were used for topical investigation consistently throughout the work.
Thanks for articulating your definition of th ...

Martin, I'd like to not misunderstand you. So, do you mean your quoted conclusion is the prevalent notion or its opposite? And what do you think its opposite is?
Sorry if I was unclear. It seems to m ...

The overwhelming evidence, therefore, suggests that if we must make a generalized statement about the practice of Hellenistic astrologers, we can't but say they used whole signs; there is simply no ev ...

I am not seeing the relevant example in Ptolemy 3.11 translation by Robbins, perhaps you can supply us with a quote.
It is III 10 in the Robbins translation, III 11 in Hübner's more recent critical ...

Culmination (an astrological term) = intersection of prime meridian with the ecliptic (MC point)
