Aporia (ἀπορία_ doubt) is an artifice by which a speaker feigns doubt as to where he shall begin or end or what he shall do or say, etc. Cp. “Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do?” St. Luke 16. 3.

ἀπορῶ τοῦ πρώτου μνησθῶ I am uncertain what I shall recall first D. 18.129. When the doubt is between two courses it is often called diaporēsis.
