The Lorem ipsum text is derived from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of Cicero’s ‘De finibus bonorum et malorum’.[7][8] The physical source may have been the 1914 Loeb Classical Library edition of De finibus, where the Latin text, presented on the left-hand (even) pages, breaks off on page 34 with “Neque porro quisquam est qui do-” and continues on page 36 with “lorem ipsum “, suggesting that the galley type of that page was mixed up to make the dummy text seen today.[1]
