Headword: Andra

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] him [sc. that is so] by nature.[1]
Arrian [writes]: "a man brash because of youth, ignorant because of inexperience of matters, and trustworthy to the masses on account of strength of body and [a habit of] rushing headlong into battle; for not even what is planned in respect of the most important events happen amongst a few men -- those thinking ahead about them the most -- but amongst the masses as a whole. Nothing less follows the excessive straining after uniting and being united".[2]
