Antiphon [sc. uses this word for] eternity and that which always stands in the same [circumstances]. Just as happiness is called eu)estw/ ["well-being"].[1] The reading of Diogenianus in Truth [in the] second [book].[2]

[1] From Harpokration s.v., where the manuscripts have the headword as either two words (as here) or one. More important, whereas Adler prints e)/stw here, so as to produce the imperative phrase "let him/her/it always be", she has ai)eiestw/ at the doublet alphaiota 103 (and cf. epsilon 3446), which is clearly correct.
[1] Antiphon the Sophist, 87 B 22 in Diels/Kranz, Fragmente der Vorsokratiker. II, Berlin 1922, p. 289 ff. (On the Antiphons, one or two, see alpha 2744, alpha 2745, alpha 2746, and generally OCD(4) p.108; also R.K. Sprague (ed.), The older sophists (London 1972).)
[2] (An addition to Harpok. The Suda mss have Diogenianus in the nominative, which Adler prints; it should obviously be genitive, as in Photius.) On the scholar Diogenianus of Heraclea, who had evidently produced an edition of Antiphon's Truth, see delta 1139, delta 1140, and generally OCD(4) pp.457-8, under Diogenianus(2).
