" (covered walkway), a "syssition" (room for communal dining) and a categorized organization of scrolls.
"The Mouseion is also part of the palaces, possessing a "
" and "exedra" and large "oikos", in which the common table of the "philologoi", men who are members of the "Mouseion", is located. This "synodos" has property in common and a priest in charge of the "Mouseion", formerly appointed by the kings, but now by Caesar." --Strabo
"Eoperipatus butleri" was described by Richard Evans in 1901, from a single female specimen discovered by A. M. Butler in the Larut Hills of West Malaysia. The generic name "Eoperipatus" is derived from an Ancient Greek combining form of "ēṓs", meaning "dawn", and "
", meaning "walking about". The specific name "butleri" is in honour of its discoverer.

". Aristotle's school came to be so named because of the "peripatoi" ("colonnades" or "covered walkways") of the Lyceum where the members met. The legend that the name came from Aristotle's alleged habit of walking while lecturing may have started with Hermippus of Smyrna.
The generic name "Eoperipatus" is derived from an Ancient Greek combining form of "ēṓs", meaning "dawn", and "

Scylax of Caryanda () was a renowned Greek explorer and writer of the late 6th and early 5th centuries BCE. His own writings are lost, though occasionally cited or quoted by later Greek and Roman authors. The periplus sometimes called the "Periplus of Scylax" is not, in fact, by him; that so-called "Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax" was written in about the early 330s BCE by an unknown author working in the ambit of the post-Platonic Academy and/or the Aristotelian
(Lyceum) at Athens.
The NW African section is sometimes claimed to have been derived from the earlier "Periplus" of Hanno the Navigator, but a close comparison makes the differences between the two texts apparent. Rather than the record of a voyage like Hanno's, or a compilation of eye-witness accounts of voyages, the "Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax" is probably an attempt at a quasi-scientific geographical account of the parts of the world accessible to Greeks in the 4th century BC. It can plausibly be associated with philosophical and scientific activities at Athens under Plato's successors in the Academy; the author was perhaps directly in contact with Plato's successors and with Aristotle and Theophrastos, in the years leading up to the foundation of Aristotle's school, the "
" or Lyceum. One of the aims of the work seems to be to calculate a total sailing length for the coasts of the Mediterranean and Black Sea, a geographical undertaking in which Aristotle's pupil Dikaiarchos of Messana went further, perhaps explicitly building upon the work of our unknown author.
