Hegel skipped Plato, Aristotle?

#1
I just finished vol. 1 of Hegel's "Lectures on the History of Philosophy," on Greek philosophy. In nearly 500 pages he discusses a wide range of the pre-Socratics, Socrates, and then a few of the post-Socratics, but completely skips Plato and Aristotle. Really? Does he taken them up somewhere else?

Perhaps he talks about Plato and Aristotle in Vol 2.? If you read vol.1, that implied a vol 2.
