Translation:
[Meaning] for the most part. This is also said with w(s plh/qei ["usually"]. Dio the historian has used the expression in many places, including [book] 17 of the Roman Histories. "For otherwise too it was his nature usually to show boldness in good fortune but moderation in ill fortune; and as the outcome of this, fearing [he judged to be] self-control, but boldness [he judged to be] licentiousness. Increasingly was this discovered in him."[1] Also in [book] 13: "indeed it was his nature usually [to derive]steadfastness from slowness, while agility came from a swift intelligence."[2]
