Headword: *fqo/nos
Adler number: phi,509
Translated headword: envy
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning an] emotion of distress at the prosperity of those nearby.[1]
"[But if envy is distress at the evident prosperity] of one of the decent [people], from this it is clear that he who is grieved at the prosperity of decent people would be [sc. called] envious [fqonero/s]. This being given, since obviously being grieved at the prosperity of the good is alien to the virtuous man (for decent people [are] good), the decent man would not be envious."[2]
