Let there be a [right] cone whose apex [is] A [see Fig. 12], [whose] diameter of the base [is] BC , [whose] center of the base [is] D , and [whose] axis [is] AD, which [cone] is cut by a plane surface through the axis, according to triangle ABC, by the 90th [prop,] of this [book].

Hence the straight line joining these points falls inside the cone [by Proposition 1]. Therefore, kel, being on the surface of the cone, is not ex­ tended in the straight line of any two points posited on kel. Hence kel is a curved line. And so let us posit point m on kel, drawing from it a perpendicular to triangle abg, and let it be the perpendicular mn. It is clear, therefore, that it falls upon the common section of plane deh and triangle abg, which is dz, and it falls upon the segment of this line inside the cone, because it falls be­ yond points, from which the tangent perpendicular eh is drawn.
