Translated headword: joy's antithesis
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the good [which is the] opposite of joyfulness.
Greek Original:
*)anteu/frasma: to\ e)nanti/on th=| eu)frosu/nh| a)gaqo/n.
Same or very similar entry in Photius and elsewhere. Since the headword, a single (neuter) noun in the Greek, is quoted from Agathon (fr. 30 Nauck), the final word here, transmitted as a)gaqo/n or a)gaw=n, might actually be his name: thus the gloss would read 'what Agathon calls the opposite of joyfulness'.
