It is a geometrical definition, claiming this: since character made you a friend, but a certain man and his nature [made] him [a friend], and both are friends of one [sc. me], therefore you must be attached to each other, just as I am in the middle. Thus you see I connect you to each other.

The headword phrase was not identified by Adler but is identifiable via the TLG as Synesius, Epistles 93.16 (quoted again, post-Suda, by Gennadius Scholarius). The origin of this commentary on it, however, is unknown.
