This paper focuses on six fragments dealing with naturalistic topics, that Aristotle and Theophrastus assign to Clidemus, without specifying whether he is the attidographer or a namesake of him. After a brief introduction (§ 1), the fragments are presented (§ 2): the first couple concerns thunderbolts and sense perception, the others deal with the botanical world. Afterwards, some clues about the issue of attribution are investigated (§ 3), and it is concluded that we should not exclude that the author can actually be the attidographer Clidemus, rather than someone with his same name (§ 4).
