"Fabricius was appointed commander for the war against Pyrrhus. For when the armies were facing each other, a certain man who was on night watch approached Fabricius and offered to kill Pyrrhus with noxious poison if Fabricius would make it financially worth his while. Fabricius loathed this man for the attempt and sent him to Pyrrhus in chains. Pyrrhus was of course astonished at the action and is said to have cried out: 'This man is a true Fabricius, whom it is more difficult for someone to turn aside from his native virtue than the sun from its accustomed orbit'."[3]

[1] The headword is present participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb a)postuge/w. Same glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere (probably, as claimed by Latte on Hesychius s.v., the New Testament: Romans 12.9).
[2] No such phrase is attested in Josephus (or indeed anywhere else).
[3] cf. Plutarch, Pyrrhus 21, and Eutropius, Breviarium 2.14; cf. upsilon 734 and esp. phi 5. The participants in this celebrated anecdote from the 280s BCE are Pyrrhus, King of Epirus (on campaign in southern Italy), and the Roman consul C. Fabricius Luscinus. See generally OCD(4) p.566.
