[sc. A proverbial phrase] in reference to those chattering out of friendship.
Greek Original:
*)/eris e)/rin ti/ktousa prosmna=tai lo/gon: e)pi\ tw=n e)k fili/as a)dolesxou/ntwn.
Likewise in Mantissa Proverbiorum 1.60 (with glosses on 'facilities' and 'chattering' appended). Arsenius 7.94a omits the phrase 'out of friendship' but adds an explanatory clause: 'i.e. arguing about philosophy'.
For the first two words, see also (e.g.) Mantissa Proverbiorum 1.59: e)/ris e)/rin a)ntifuteu/ei.
This compound verb prosmna/omai is otherwise unattested (and LSJ ignores it).
Keywords: daily life; ethics; philosophy; poetry; proverbs
