English Summaries

This work is an appendix following two other appendices in a book by Euler's friend and St. Petersbrg Academy colleague T. S. Bayer, Historia regni Graecorum Bactriani (History of the Bactrian kingdom of the Greeks). The original appendices were written by a Danish missionary in Tranquebar, C. T. Walther ("The Indian Doctrine of Time," pp. 145-190), and by Bayer himself, based on his correspondence with Walther and other Tranquebar missionaries ("Supplement to the Indian Doctrine of Time," pp. 191-200). Euler's contribution appears immediately after these.
