Made in the Ir- anian context, their existence imposes the integration of the studies per- formed on the guide of Greek fragments and on the Arabic version of Qus- ta Ibn Luqa al-Ba'albakkÃ® that have inspired all of the translators of Eur- opean languages. Moreover, the distribution of the texts in a wider and wider temporal and cultural space and their noticeable correlations suggest searches in fields up to now neglected by the historians of science, just like the Iranian one, abounding of documents and texts.
