Of quadrilateral figures, a square is that which is both equilateral and rightangled; an oblong that which is rightangled but not equilateral; a rhombus that which is equilateral but not rightangled; and a rhomboid that which has its opposite sides and angles equal to one another but is neither equilateral nor rightangled. And let quadrilaterals other than these be called trapezia.

Τῶν δὲ τετραπλεύρων σχημάτων τετράγωνον μέν ἐστιν, ὃ ἰσόπλευρόν τέ ἐστι καὶ ὀρθογώνιον, ἑτερόμηκες δέ, ὃ ὀρθογώνιον μέν, οὐκ ἰσόπλευρον δέ, ῥόμβος δέ, ὃ ἰσόπλευρον μέν, οὐκ ὀρθογώνιον δέ, ῥομβοειδὲς δὲ τὸ τὰς ἀπεναντίον πλευράς τε καὶ γωνίας ἴσας ἀλλήλαις ἔχον, ὃ οὔτε ἰσόπλευρόν ἐστιν οὔτε ὀρθογώνιον: τὰ δὲ παρὰ ταῦτα τετράπλευρα τραπέζια καλείσθω.
