"Agapios the philosopher was admired for his love of learning and for setting of dilemmas that were hard to solve."
Greek Original:
Dusepêbolos: hoti Agapios philosophos ethaumazeto epi philomatheiai kai aporiôn probolêi dusepêbolôn.
Entry (copied from alpha 157, q.v., and cf. epsilon 2241) lacking in mss TFV; added in the margin in AM; placed after delta 1620 in GI.
The unglossed headword adjective, masculine nominative singular, is generated by the genitive plural in the quotation given.
Although accepted by LSJ, the adjective duseph/bolos is probably a false reading of dusepi/bolos, as in alpha 157 and epsilon 2241.
