Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] solid [ones].[1]
Apollonius, as if conversing with himself, used to say 'I know', and 'it seems to me' and 'where are you headed', and 'one needs to know'." And [his] opinions [were] brief and adamantine.[2]
Greek Original:
Adamantina: sterra. ho de Apollônios hôsper heautôi dielegeto, oida, elege, kai dokei moi: kai poi pheresthe; kai chrê eidenai. kai doxai bracheiai kai adamantinai.
[1] Neuter plural(s); same headword plus gloss in other lexica too (references at Photius alpha324 Theodoridis); evidently quoted from somewhere -- given what follows, perhaps Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 3.21, though there are other possibilities.
[2] Much of this material recurs in kappa 912. The Apollonius in question is the neo-Pythagorean sage A. of Tyana (C1/2), on whom see principally alpha 3420.
