The definition of proportion is this: it has a size proportionate to the reciprocal things which display the same a)nqufai/resis -- Aristotle's word for a corresponding diminution. Those things which have proportion to one another also are said to be similar to one another.[1]
But a)na/logon [also] means similarly.
And elsewhere: "the soldiers [were] noble to see, and were proportionate to their equivalent status."[2]
Also [sc. attested is the related adverb] a)nalo/gws, [meaning] equally. Also [sc. attested is the comparative] a)nalogw/teron, [meaning] that which is loftier, wiser, more analogical.
