[sc. So called] because it is in harmony with the law and creative of community.
Greek Original:
*di/kaion pra=gma: o(/ti tw=| no/mw| e)sti\ su/mfwnon kai\ koinwni/as poihtiko/n.
The headword phrase gives the impression of being quoted from somewhere, and it does occur in e.g. Isaeus 10.22. But in fact a TLG search on the gloss reveals that the entire entry in generated by Diogenes Laertius 7.99 (on Stoic doctrine): every good (pa=n a)gaqo/n) is ... just (di/kaion) "because etc.". See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXIII.
