[1] An opaque gloss; perhaps in the sense that mankind's patrimony is ephemerality? The extended version of this entry in Etym.Magn. cites (as if it should be illuminating) Homer, Odyssey 18.136-7, which might be translated as "The mind of earth-bound mortals is such as the day the father of gods and men brings to them."
[2] This part of the entry = Hesychius epsilon7447, which probably derives from commentary to 1 Esdras 1:2 .
