VALDES GARCIA, María Alejandra. Possible lines of argument in the account according to the Greek authors of Progymnásmata. Nova tellus [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.1, pp.75-100. ISSN 0185-3058.

At Progymnásmata the school exercise called diegema is capable of refutatio or confirmatio by the so called telika kephalaia. The refutation can be done from the following topoi: obscurity, unlikeliness, uselessness, inadequation, redundancy, innovation, etc., and it can be confirmed from the opposite topics. It also can get arguments from loci if the argumentation is done from the stoicheia diegematos in which the action is based: prosopon, pragma, topos, chronos, tropos, aitia and hyle.

Keywords : Account; line of argument; progymnásmata.
