Cinti 51 notes: “Ludovico delle Colombe rispose nel 1612 con il suo “Discorso Apologetico”, cui fece seguito nel 1613 l’opera di Vincenzo di Grazia “Considerazioni sopro ‘l Discorso di Galileo Galilei”...D.S.B. V, pp. 241-2: “Using the concept of moment and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo extended the scope of the Archimedean work beyond purely hydrostatic considerations...The Book on Bodies in water drew attacks from four Aristotelian professors at Florence and Pisa...Galileo prepared answers to his critics, which he turned over to Castelli for publication in order to avoid personal involvement. Detailed replies to two of them...written principally by Galileo himself appeared anonymously in 1615, with a prefatory note by Castelli implying that he was the author ad that Galileo would have been more severe.”
