The headword phrase might be extracted from somewhere (unidentifiable) in this exact form, but is perhaps more probably a rearrangement of the one in the passage quoted.
[1] For the quasi-proverbial kata\ ph=xun, "little by little", see LSJ s.v. ph=xus, V.3.
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr.286 Zintzen (166 Asmus); quoted already, in part, at epsilon 2307. Bernhardy proposed the adverb a)nempodi/stws instead of the transmitted adjective a)nempo/distos. Jonathan Toup (1713-1785) and Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766) suggested emending panikou= "panic" to panoiki/ou "of his whole household."
