Disagreement Among Experts

Lucian, Icaromenippus 5 (tr. A.M. Harmon):
Extraordinary that learned men quarrelled with each other about their doctrines and did not hold the same views about the same things!

ἄτοπον λέγεις, εἰ σοφοὶ ὄντες οἱ ἄνδρες ἐστασίαζον πρὸς αὑτοὺς περὶ τῶν λόγων καὶ οὐ τὰ αὐτὰ περὶ τῶν αὐτῶν ἐδόξαζον.
Latin translation by Erasmus:
rem absurdam narras, si viri, quum essent sapientes, inter sese de rebus factiose dissidebant, neque de iisdem eadem probabant.
