[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the feminine nominative singular (agreeing with the noun swfrosu/nh) of this present participle.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 61 Zintzen (22 Asmus). The complete passage reads thus: "Decorum and moderation are not only relief and removal of the corresponding evils -– lack of decorum and of moderation –- but also active and voluntary lives. And while the former converts what is worst in us into what is best, the latter [sc. is concerned with] ordering and arranging all passionate states of the soul." See also kappa 2145.
