Greek Original:
Συντυχία: ἡ αἰφνίδιος τῶν πραγμάτων μεταβολή. ὑπολαβὼν οὖν οὐ κατὰ συντυχίαν, ἀλλ' ἀπό τινος ἕξεως τοιαύτην εἶναι περὶ αὐτὸν διάθεσιν.
Hesychius sigma2734 glosses with συνέντευξις , a compound otherwise unknown in Greek. Photius' Lexicon (sigma819 Theodoridis) has, instead of this feminine headword, neuter συντύχημα (glossed with the feminine). See also sigma 1638, sigma 1639, sigma 1648, epsilon 1495, tau 1232 (cf. tau 1233 and tau 1234).
[1] Unidentified.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 192 Zintzen. For the distinction between ἕξις ('deeply rooted disposition') and διάθεσις ('changeable attitude') see John of Damascus cited at epsilon 1767. The phrase κατὰ συντυχίαν has become widespread for 'accidentally, by accident' (cf. kappa 688), and should perhaps be so understood here.
