Sexti Sententiarum

Sexti Sententiarum by Johann Gildemeister (1873)

This a critical edition of the so-called "sentences of Sextus," numbering 451 in this edition. This collection was known to Origen; the Latin translation attributed to Rufinus dates to around 400. The attribution to Pope Sixtus (although disputed by Jerome) made the book a popular one in the Christian tradition, and there are affinities between some of the sentences and Christian sayings.
