Although at a certain moment the Stoics could accept an inclusive disjunction, the sources are very clear in this regard and show us that the basic disjunction in the Stoicism was the exclusive disjunction.
Disjunction permits the expression of a choice between two or more members of a set of possibilities (as in do you want the fish or the meat dinner?) or the expression of a set of options (as in I usually have coffee or tea in the mornings); there are some more specific distinctions which might be made, as in exclusive disjunction (one disjunct or the other, but not both) and inclusive disjunction (one or both disjuncts), etc.
