Searching, for many years, Plato's Timaeus Work, geometry related to
the creation of the world- soul of the world] and presenting it to conferences nationally and internationally, I searched in the Liddell and Scott reference for the word “γένος” found in Plato's "Epinomis" 981b but, found no reference for this.
As I anticipate, it concerns another genus of Polyhedron, a very Special one Ontologically, and this is very important Ι understand:
“....Στερεὰ δὲ σώματα λέγεσθαι χρὴ …. πέντε, ……., τὸ δὲ ἄλλο γένος ἅπαν ἔχει μορφὴν μίαν·…..…ψυχῆς γένος"
[..there are .. five solid bodies…. the other genus which in total has one form …the genus of the soul…] Plato’s Epinomis 981b. In 981a, of this work, Plato states that the composition of, soul and body bares a single form.
Similarly, Plato in Timaeus [53 E] refers to the solids having each its own genus and in his Republic makes reference to the Construction of the Universal Planets [XIV 616 E -617A].
Interpretation for γένος genus – form] Proposed By Panagiotis Stefanides is the “Generator Polyhedron”, of his recent Discovered [Invention [ 03 April 2017].…/generator-polyhedron-platonic-e…/ .
“Generator Polyhedron” refers to the geometric characteristics of this Solid found to be the root upon which other Solid Polyhedra are based i.e. the Platonic/Eucleidean Solids [Icosahedron Dodecahedron etc.] The Geometry of this paper is part of book: [ISBN 978 – 618 – 83169 – 0 - 4], National Library of Greece , 04/05/2017, by Panagiotis Ch. Stefanides.

Keywords. Generator Polyhedron, Platonic – Eucleidean Solids, Polyhedra, Geometry, Plato’s Epinomis, γένος - Solids [ Pl Ti 53 E].
