### Additional notes

- The letters A, B, C, D are used as we would later use A, E, I, O. Concretely: A stands for the universal affirmative statement, B stands for the universal negative statement, C stands for the particular affirmative statement, and D stands for the particular negative statement.

This diagram fully describes the relations between truth values of the four vertices. For example, starting from the vertical line at 12 o'clock and moving clockwise to the horizontal line at 3 o'clock, we read:

$\bullet$ C: si falsum est, astruitur B $\Rightarrow$ cf. contradiction between B and C

$\bullet$ D: si falsum est, destruitur B $\Rightarrow$ cf. subalternation from B to D

$\bullet$ A: si verum est, destruitur B $\Rightarrow$ cf. contrariety between A and B

$\bullet$ C: si verum est, destruitur B $\Rightarrow$ cf. contradiction between B and C
